Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice


You were misdiagnosed, your surgery was botched or your family member was killed by the negligence of a treating physician. Why should you have to pay for continuing or corrective medical expenses, lost income, medications, mileage, surgery and therapy or the lost income of your family member?

In Louisiana, the surviving spouse, parent, or child of the deceased, and in some cases, the mother and father and siblings of the deceased may sue to recover damages if death results from the doctor’s negligence. A lawsuit of this type is called the wrongful death action, and must be filed against the doctor, hospital, clinic, nurse, attendant or therapist within one year of the death.Medical Malpractice-Louisiana

Whether the suffering was long or short, the medical professional that killed them would have been liable for their pain and suffering, had they survived. With your relative’s death, your relative’s surviving heirs are now entitled, by right of survivorship, to that compensation for their loved one’s pain and suffering.

Next, get an attorney experienced in handling medical malpractice cases. Don’t deal with the attorney for the doctor, hospital, clinic, nurse, attendant, or therapist yourself. The defense attorney will tell you that the liability is strong enough to justify a decent offer, the treatment was a foreseeable possible side effect of the medical treatment or procedure, the injury didn’t result from treatment that fell below the standard of care. He will lowball you into a stingy settlement by telling you that you were warned this could happen. His job is to not pay you for any injury or pay you as little insurance money as possible. At Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC, you pay nothing for an attorney to fight the attorney for the doctor, hospital, clinic, nurse, attendant or therapist, until you get paid.

You are entitled to compensation for the following from the doctor, hospital, clinic, nurse, attendant or therapist for:

> Medical expenses, including expenses covered by your insurance,
> Lost past and future income to your family,
> Medications for you and for family members if death results from medical negligence,
> Pain and suffering by the mistreated patient or his family if death resulted,
> Loss of marital relations,
> Therapy for the patient, or survivors
> Funeral expenses if the worst results,
> Corrective or mitigating surgery,
> Emotional distress suffered by the patient and his family.
