Understanding Medical Malpractice Laws In Louisiana


Claims for medical malpractice cover many areas of medical negligence such as delays in treatment, misdiagnosis, improper treatment, medication errors, birth injuries, and nursing negligence.

The procedures for filing a medical malpractice claim vary by state. Louisiana is governed by the Louisiana Medical Malpractice Act, which requires plaintiffs to submit their complaint to a medical review panel of three doctors before filing a conventional lawsuit in court. Unfortunately, this process can be lengthy, complex and expensive.
