When we are ill or injured, we are quick to rely on modern medicine to assist us. Individuals in Louisiana and elsewhere have much faith and trust in medical professionals, and for a good reason. They are educated, trained and skilled at diagnosing and treating patients. Nonetheless, doctors, surgeons and nurses are humans and subject to human errors. This means a mistake could happen during diagnosis, treatment or a surgery, causing a patient to suffer a new or a worsened condition.
Discovering that your current pain and suffering was due to a medical error is tough to rationalize. It can also make it difficult for you to entrust you current condition to another medical professional.
