Likely, any Louisiana or Mississippi resident who has undergone surgery of any sort has experienced at least a bit of nervousness beforehand. With any surgery comes the potential for a poor outcome, and sometimes doctors make mistakes, such as accessing the wrong site. Such was the case for a woman in another state who underwent an operation on her kidney and became the victim of what hospitals refer to as a "never event," a term that applies to surgical errors that should never occur if hospitals follow proper procedures. The patient filed a lawsuit in March of this year, suing the hospital for more than $20 million.
Most Louisiana and Mississippi residents have had to visit a pharmacy to have a prescription filled, and in fact, some people requiring medication for a chronic condition do so regularly. Pharmacists must complete years of education and training in order to properly and safely perform their job duties, so clients should feel safe knowing they will receive the correct type and dosage of medication, along with appropriate instructions for use. However, occasionally, a prescription will be filled incorrectly, and when this happens, the patient's life may be in danger. As an example, a man in another state died when he was given a different medication than his doctor intended, and the executrix of his estate is now suing the pharmacy

I.Introduction We are often asked "what is the statute of limitations in Louisiana for a personal injury claim?" and "what is the statute of limitations in Louisiana for a medical malpractice claim?" The short answer to both questions is one year. If it was as simple as that, though, there would only be one statute of limitation, rather than numerous codified laws addressing the issue. There would not be literally thousands of court decisions interpreting the various nuances of Louisiana law pertaining to the time limits to bring legal claims. Thus, The Bowling Law Firm presents this
