What types of wrongful death damages can you recover?

If your spouse or child dies in Louisiana because of someone’s negligence or wrongdoing, you have the right to sue that person for the wrongful death of your loved one. As FindLaw explains, a wrongful death lawsuit is a civil action where you sue the person responsible for your loved one’s death for monetary damages.

Polypharmacy could increase interaction risks

Did you know that many Louisiana residents, especially seniors, are in a state of polypharmacy? This practice of taking many prescription drugs at the same time is not necessarily injurious all by itself, but each new pharmaceutical you take could increase your risk of experiencing serious side effects. You probably depend on doctors, pharmacists and nurses to keep an eye out for potential interactions. Unfortunately, sometimes your trust in these professionals could turn out to be misplaced.

How to prevent medication errors

When Louisiana residents receive a prescription, they usually expect that their doctor has written them an appropriate dosage for the correct medicine. Sometimes errors happen, though, and it is important for people to know what they should do when they learn there is something wrong with their prescription.

The difference between medical malpractice and wrongful death

When Louisiana residents lose a loved one because of medical negligence, they may wonder if their situation is considered medical malpractice or wrongful death. These legal terms can have a few factors in common but there are a few key differences between them, and it is important for people to understand these differences before they take any kind of action.
