Medical Malpractice Overview

New Orleans Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Though medical malpractice is complex, we have the resources and expertise to handle your case. Physicians are highly trained and educated professionals–however–whether due to working long hours, the fast paced hospital environment, or miscommunications between nurses, or other staff, medical professionals sometimes commit errors in rendering treatment.

The Institute of Medicine estimates that over one million patients are injured or killed every year as a result of medical malpractice. Despite these statistics, Healthgrades estimates that only 2% of those people file claims to hold those medical providers responsible for their malpractice.
