Louisiana residents likely know that when a person seeks medical attention, a swift and accurate diagnosis and immediate attention to treatment can significantly affect the outcome. In a hospital emergency room setting, although medical professionals are under pressure to quickly and efficiently evaluate a patient's condition and deliver an accurate diagnosis, failure to do so can have catastrophic results for the patient. Recently, a jury in another state awarded a 66-year-old man $3 million after hearing his case of emergency room malpractice. Early in 2016, the man, who was then 63, fell and struck his face on furniture. He went to a hospital emergency

When a physician in Louisiana or elsewhere prescribes a drug, the patient assumes that the physician is aware of any allergies in his or her medical history and would not prescribe the drug if it was not safe for the patient.

A woman in another state filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging she was not well informed prior to an operation she underwent in 2015. Recently, a judge set a two-week jury trial for June of next year for the case. In May 2015, the woman went to the hospital to investigate her abdominal pain. Physicians
