Medical Malpractice

med-mal1We are a team of Louisiana attorneys and lawyers who have experience handling complex medical malpractice lawsuits.

Medical Malpractice involves a doctor or health care provider (nurse, tech, dentist, etc.) who makes a mistake that hurts someone.

In Louisiana, there are special procedures which must be followed in medical malpractice cases. For example, in Louisiana, a claim must be filed with the State before a lawsuit can be filed. This claim is then reviewed by a panel of three Louisiana doctors, who give an opinion about whether any health care provider committed malpractice. Only after the panel has reached its decision can a lawsuit be filed. There are many complicated details to this Louisiana panel procedure, and many traps for the inexperienced Louisiana attorney.

med-mal2After the panel, the health care providers and the panelists must be deposed about the case. These depositions involve complex medical issues, and your attorney should be well versed in the medical issues of your case.

The Gallagher Law Firm and its Louisiana attorneys have extensive experience with Louisiana medical malpractice cases. We have prosecuted hundreds of Louisiana medical malpractice cases from the panel, through trial and even up to the Louisiana Supreme Court. While our experience has helped us gain a strong knowledge of medicine, we hire the best doctors and nurses to help us fine tune our cases.
