Medical malpractice lawsuits occur when an individual has been harmed or injured due to poor medical treatment or an incorrect diagnosis from a medical practitioner such as a doctor or nurse, or any other hospital worker. It must be determined if the medical provider was “negligent,” or did not provide the proper care.
If you have suffered from a misdiagnosis, or poor medical care contact Peyton Burkhalter Law for a free consultation to evaluate the merits of your case. You may be entitled to medical malpractice recovery. In Louisiana, there is a “statute of limitations”, which means that you have a certain period of time to file a lawsuit from the time that your injury occurred. If you fail to file a lawsuit before the expiration date, you will not be allowed to pursue your medical malpractice lawsuit.
If you have an acceptable reason for filing a lawsuit, there are a few things to keep in mind. Doctors maintain personal liability insurance in the event of malpractice lawsuits. It is important to have an experienced lawyer by your side. You can be sure that the medical personnel will have the proper representation to discredit your claim.
