Man files medical malpractice lawsuit against family physician

Many Louisiana residents have experienced heart difficulty and likely understand the fear, anxiety, pain and discomfort that accompanies such a significant medical issue. Since the heart is a vital organ, patients with heart problems need to know their physician and any other medical professionals involved in their case are providing an accurate and timely diagnosis and prescribing an effective follow-up treatment plan. Unfortunately, a man in a different state claims he did not receive such care, and he and his wife recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against his family physician and a medical practice.

In the complaint, the patient claims that the physician was professionally negligent as he failed to apply the knowledge and provide the care expected of a reasonably well-qualified health care provider. Apparently, the patient suffers from hyperlipidemia, a high concentration of fats in the blood. He alleges his physician was negligent in not prescribing a higher dose of fenofibrate or trying a different medication to treat the problem.

Further, the filing claims the physician did not appropriately treat the patient's high cholesterol and that he failed to diagnose the patient's cardiovascular disease in time. The patient alleges that, as a result, he has suffered cardiovascular disease, myocardial infarction and injury to his body as a whole. According to the plaintiff, he now endures constant pain and suffering and has lost the ability to lead a normal, enjoyable life, as well as having to pay for medical expenses. He is seeking in excess of $50,000 plus costs. His wife is also seeking in excess of $50,000 plus costs, claiming loss of consortium.

Louisiana residents who have endured a serious health issue and felt they did not receive the level of care expected of the medical professionals they have entrusted with their care can likely relate to this man's experience. Many people in this position choose to pursue the matter through civil court. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can review individual case details and discuss legal options.
