How Coronavirus Is Impacting Louisiana Insurance Settlements

If you suffered injuries related to a car accident, you may be in the middle of negotiations with an insurance company regarding a settlement offer for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Now, with the new COVID-19 virus impacting everyone in the United States, many people have been furloughed, laid off, or simply fired. In many cases, the reduction in hours or being laid off may have to do with the fact that certain businesses have been deemed “non-essential.” With the lack of revenue and income, businesses simply had to shutter their doors either temporarily or permanently, and the employees feel the financial devastation as well as the owners.

Malfunctioning technology can lead to surgical errors

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.

Statutes of Limitation or “Prescription” in Louisiana Personal Injury

On behalf of David Bowling of The Bowling Law Firm, A Professional Law Corporation posted in Legal Information on Friday, February 7, 2014. 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.
