Going to the doctor may not be fun, but when you go you likely take comfort in the fact that your doctor is well-educated and well-trained. He or she may have years, perhaps even decades, of experience. In most cases, this is enough to allow a medical professional in Louisiana to avoid costly, injurious or sometimes even fatal, mistakes. Yet, we are all human, which means that at some point mistakes are going to be made. As scary as that may sound, even more frightening may be the fact that some of these mistakes should never, under any circumstances, occur.
As we discussed previously, “never events” are far too common across Louisiana and the country as a whole. Whether it is leaving a surgical instrument inside of a patient, giving a patient a lethal overdose of prescribed medication or performing an unnecessary operation, these mishaps are unforgiveable. Tragically, the victims of never events are often left with pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement or death. In other words, one mistake made by a medical professional can forever change an individual’s life.
If you have been harmed by medical malpractice, then you may wonder what you can do to obtain justice and recoup compensation for your losses. One way to do this is to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you succeed on your claim, then you may be awarded significant compensation for you damages, which may include compensation for medical expenses and lost wages.
