Hospital Negligence Archives

Singer claims he suffered life-changing hospital negligence

There is some risk with most medical care, but many risks can be limited for most patients with a careful following of procedures and policies. When medical professionals fail to follow basic standards of care, serious permanent damage can be a potential result for a patient. Louisiana residents may be interested in the claim of one singer who experienced poor care and medical management after an open heart surgery, and has filed a lawsuit for the hospital negligence he suffered.

Doctors Using Potentially Risky Drug to Treat Back Pain

Paramedics blamed in malpractice case

In an emergency, paramedics are usually among the first to arrive on the scene, as many Louisiana residents are aware. Treatments administered by these individuals are, for many, the difference between life and death. Unfortunately, the family of a 30-year-old mother of two has filed a malpractice lawsuit, accusing a team of paramedics of failing to administer potentially lifesaving treatments to the now deceased woman. 

Hep C outbreak results in malpractice suit

Residents of Louisiana who are visiting hospitals rarely believe that they will contract an illness while receiving treatment for another. They are lead to believe that the hospital policies and procedures will prevent such a thing from happening. However, if an infection is released within a hospital, the resulting outbreak can cause long-term damage, and victims may choose to file a malpractice lawsuit. 

Hospital negligence alleged after patients exposed to illness

Most patients do not consider the possibility that they may be exposed to a serious illness when they go to a hospital for the treatment of an illness or injury. Many Louisiana residents may already be aware that hospitals have a number of policies and procedures in place to help prevent the spread of illness by the staff. Unfortunately, sometimes, someone slips through the cracks, and even a single staff member can expose thousands of patients to illness. A hospital negligence suit has been filed against a hospital where thousands of patients were exposed by a nurse to tuberculosis. 

Man awarded nearly $8 million in hospital negligence lawsuit

Many residents of Louisiana may personally know or know of someone whose job requires them to perform some form of manual labor. These individuals may often be very aware of their physical health because an injury could result in them being unable to perform their job. Even seemingly minor injuries or minor aches and pains can eventually worsen and result in career-ending injuries if they are not treated quickly and properly. One man was recently awarded millions after he was paralyzed due to hospital negligence

Paralyzed woman awarded $18 million in malpractice case

It is unfortunate when a patient suffers injuries while under a doctor's care, and there can be a wide variety of contributing factors. These injuries can often result in malpractice suits. Some Louisiana residents may know someone who has been injured while staying at a hospital and has chosen to file a lawsuit. A woman was recently awarded $18 million after hospital negligence resulted in the paralysis of her legs. 

Suspended doctor's mistakes result in hospital negligence lawsuit

Most Louisiana patients assume that their doctors are in good standing and are practicing medicine with a valid license. Some might be shocked to find that this isn't always the case. A lawsuit in a neighboring state was recently settled when a jury determined that hospital negligence was committed when a doctor on probation was allowed to continue treating patients. 

Family claims that hospital negligence caused a loved one's death

For many Louisiana families who have loved ones who have undergone or are planning to undergo surgery, the waiting can be both stressful and terrifying. Families and patients have to wait for a diagnosis, then they have to wait for a procedure, and then they have to wait for the results of that procedure. However, being forced to wait too long can prove deadly to patients. One family claims that hospital negligence is to blame for the death of their loved one. They claim that a delay in his surgery was directly related to the cause of death.
