Skilled Medical Malpractice Attorney in New Orleans
Louisiana law firm protects your rights after injury by medical mistake
Good medical care is important in order for you to stay healthy. When the medical care you receive results in injury, The Law Offices of John S. Williams, LLC delivers experienced, committed legal service to obtain compensation on your behalf.
In the medical profession, even a minor mistake can result in serious injury or death. Our law firm has successful experience investigating and pursuing the parties responsible for medical injury, which may include doctors, nurses, staff, and the institutions that employ negligent medical personnel.
When you visit a doctor, or undergo a procedure to address a health issue, you count on receiving safe and standardized care. When a healthcare provider delivers a lower standard of care, or makes mistakes, many types of injuries can occur including:
Surgical error: Among others, common surgical mistakes include wrong site surgery, accidentally damaging other body parts during surgery, or leaving surgical materials inside the body.
Anesthesia mistakes: Mistakes made by anesthesiologists can be deadly. Failure to review a patient’s history, improper use of equipment, wrong dose, and failure to monitor a patient during surgery can lead to injury, brain damage, or death.
Nursing care: Nursing or staff care that falls below accepted standards of care can result in falls, infection, or severe injury.
Medication mistakes: Patients may be given the wrong medication, too much or too little medication, or medication that clearly contradicts their medical history.
Diagnosis: A failure to diagnose a serious injury or illness can result in delayed treatment that could cause early death.
Emergency room error: Patients treated negligently, or improperly discharged after an emergency department visit may see their illness or injury worsen to the point of causing permanent injury or death.
If you are injured through the mistake of a healthcare practitioner, your personal injury attorney must prove you were provided a lower level of care than should have been expected from the doctor or other provider. Your lawyer will conduct an investigation to gather evidence, data, and testimony to support your claim.
