Emergency room patient dies, hospital negligence apparent cause

A hospital outside Louisiana has come out fighting against a lawsuit filed on behalf of a man who died several months after visiting the emergency room. Those filing the hospital negligence claim say the man was left unattended by staff members, which led to him falling and hitting his head. He suffered serious injuries in the fall, from which he was unable to recover.

Louisiana doctors may not always apologize for surgical errors

National guidelines recommending full disclosure of medical mistakes suggest that every patient has the right to know when something doesn't go as planned during surgery. Surgical errors often result in serious injuries or death in hospitals throughout the nation. Louisiana patients may be interested in the results of a recent survey that indicates the majority of participants only follow approximately five out of eight national recommendations.

Facility outside Louisiana accused of hospital negligence

A man in another state was apparently struck by a motor vehicle on his way home from work in September 2015. Several events unfolded in the aftermath of the accident that led to the man filing a hospital negligence lawsuit against those he blames for the loss of his leg. Patients in Louisiana health care facilities have suffered similarly in the past when substandard care was provided at various hospitals.

Mistrial motion filed in birth injuries case

A jury outside Louisiana recently awarded a child more than $50 million. However, the situation may not yet be resolved, as the defendant has filed for mistrial. In a rather strange development, the attorney for the plaintiff is being accused of evoking Nazi-related sentiments in the closing arguments of the birth injuries case.
