Mother claims negligent staff caused birth injuries

The birth of an infant is often described as miraculous. Many mothers in Louisiana can recall the joy and excitement they experienced as they carried their babies to term and brought them into the world. Others' memories may not be so idyllic, especially if complications arose during pregnancy that required emergency medical attention. It is even worse for those whose children suffered birth injuries because hospital staff members were negligent.

Avoiding hospital negligence through well-informed decisions

It has been suggested that one of the best ways to prevent medical malpractice is to take matters into one's own hands and to make informed decisions when choosing doctors and medical facilities for care. Hospital negligence remains problematic in Louisiana and throughout the nation. With an estimated 17,000 medical malpractice lawsuits filed each year, prospective patients are wise to do their research before undergoing any form of treatment or surgical procedure.

Hospital negligence may result in wrongful death claims

Patients in Louisiana and beyond often face legal challenges after becoming injured or ill during the course of professional medical treatment. Hospital negligence remains problematic in many areas, often caused by misdiagnosis, surgical errors or other medical mishaps. In worst cases, deaths have occurred; when a family suffers the untimely death of a loved one due to alleged doctor negligence, a wrongful death claim may be appropriate.

Legal recourse for those injured by surgical errors in Louisiana

Undergoing surgery in a Louisiana hospital (or, any other hospital in the nation, for that matter) requires a certain amount of trust between patient and surgeon. Any type of surgery contains inherent risks to a patient; although, some procedures are obviously more complicated than others. Surgical errors continue to be problematic in many hospitals, causing patients to suffer serious injuries or death.
