Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Case
If you have recently been injured, were ill, or had any other reason to visit a hospital or physician you may want to consider what your experience was like.

But before you do, consider the Louisiana Law stipulations regarding medical malpractice, to see if you could possibly have a case.
Medical Malpractice and What You Should Know
The first thing that is absolutely vital for you understand, is that in the state of Louisiana, a medical malpractice claim must first be submitted to a medical review panel before pursuing a lawsuit. However, this does not mean you shouldn’t still be in contact with a personal injury attorney. During the review, three qualified experts will review your medical malpractice claim and determine whether or not your claim has sufficient evidence as proof of a breach in standard care. While the panel’s decision is not binding, it is considered expert opinion and is admissible in court for the defendant; which is the medical provider. Should the panel come up with an unfavorable decision, you can still pursue litigation, as a favorable decision is not required to proceed. However, your success is much higher with a favorable decision from the medical review panel.
This is just one of many stipulations set by the state of Louisiana in regards to medical malpractice lawsuits.
