Previously on this blog we discussed informed consent and how, in some instances, doctors in Lafayette either fail to obtain or go beyond the confines of said consent. When this happens, medical malpractice can occur, leaving victims with serious injuries that, in turn, can lead to a worsened medical condition or even a decreased chance of survival. Recovering from medical malpractice can be tough for victims. They can suffer an extensive amount of physical pain and suffering, of course, but their emotional well-being may also be put in jeopardy, and they may find themselves unable to afford the medical care they now desperately need.
This is where a medical malpractice lawsuit may prove beneficial. If you have been hurt by the negligent acts of a medical professional, then you may be able to pursue compensation so long as you can prove that the negligence caused your injuries. As easy as that may sound, medical professionals and the hospitals at which they work oftentimes vigorously defend their actions and try to shift blame to victims.
When this happens, plaintiffs to these cases need to fight back. That is why at Tauzin & Lorio our legal professionals craft strong legal strategies aimed at curtailing potential defenses and imposing liability. We know that certain issues, like informed consent, may be somewhat muddled, but we also know that victims only need to prove their case by a preponderance of the evidence.
Although we take pride in our experience and skill at handling medical malpractice claims, we cannot guarantee that we can prevail on a given claim. However, we do utilize our skills, knowledge and dedication to give our clients the best possible chance of successfully recovering their damages, including medical expenses and lost wages.
