Medical Malpractice

medical-malpractice
Under Louisiana law, medical malpractice is a legal term of art which refers to a claim of negligence brought against a healthcare provider. That is, medical malpractice simply refers to a healthcare provider’s negligence or misconduct which results in personal injury.    The term healthcare provider may refer to a variety of medical personnel, including nurse practitioners, physicians, hospitals, etc.  These healthcare providers, if “qualified”, cannot be subject to liability beyond the limitations set forth in Louisiana’s Medical Malpractice Act.

Many serious personal injury cases occurring in Louisiana arise out of medical malpractice, including those involving misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical errors, premature hospital discharge and improper prescription orders, just to name a few.  Injuries which arise out of medical malpractice are often severe in nature, and may include permanent injury, paralysis and death.

It takes a combination of medical knowledge, legal experience, litigation skills and financial resources to effectively pursue a medical malpractice claim. Attorney J. Craig Jones, PLC is recognized by referring peers to possess those qualities of legal experience and financial resources to effectively litigate medical malpractice cases.
