Representing People Harmed By Medical Malpractice And Sufferers Of Nursing Home Injuries

Patients who entrust their health and welfare to the care of health care professionals rightfully expect that doctors, nurses, technicians and hospital personnel will adhere to widely accepted standards. Likewise, families who carefully select nursing homes and assisted living facilities for their loved ones expect proper monitoring and care.

The vast majority of hospitals, doctors, nurses and long-term care personnel work hard to take good care of patients and residents. Unfortunately, however, medical mistakes and nursing home abuse both occur from time to time. An injury claim or lawsuit can help an injured patient or resident and/or his or her family to cope with expenses, pain and suffering associated with the errors.

Medical Malpractice

Common examples of negligence in health care settings include:

  • Emergency room errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Surgery on wrong body part(s)
  • Foreign object left in a patient's body
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Anesthesiologist error
  • Medication error

If you were injured or if a family member died under questionable circumstances while under the care of medical professionals, contact an experienced plaintiff's attorney. Doug Bryan in Marksville represents people injured in these ways throughout Louisiana.

Nursing Home Neglect

Long-term care facilities, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities and rehabilitation centers typically house many people who are there precisely because they cannot fully care for themselves. They rely on care givers to keep them safe, to keep them dressed, nourished and hydrated, and to notice when they need medical attention. Did your mother, father, husband or wife develop bedsores while in a nursing home or assisted living facility? Bedsores are almost always a sign of neglect.

When understaffing or outright nursing home abuse causes injury or the unexplainable death of a resident, it is important to look into what happened. When you bring your loved one's injury or untimely death to the attention of a skilled litigator, you may be helping prevent future such incidents.

You may also recover money needed to pay additional medical bills, additional care costs if your loved one has to move to a higher level of a care as a result, funeral and burial expenses, and intangible but very real losses such as loss of companionship.
