Steps to File a Medical Malpractice Claim in Louisiana

A medical malpractice claim needs to be brought within one year of the date of the malpractice or within one year of the discovery of the injury. Certain other exceptions apply so make sure to consult a knowledgeable injury attorney to see if you have a valid claim.

Steps to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in Louisiana include:

  • Request a review from the Patient Compensation Fund
  • Provide information about the malpractice and related injuries
  • Convene a panel of doctors and an attorney to review the case
  • Receive the medical expert testimony from the panel
  • Proceed with litigation or dispute resolution proceedings

It is the responsibility of the injured to prove that a medical professional committed malpractice against them. This is why it is so important to work with a lawyer to provide effective representation. We take a stand for our clients to show that the medical professional was negligent in their care of the patient, and the patient suffered as a direct result of their negligence.

Recover the Compensation You Need & Deserve

Louisiana uses a Physician’s Compensation Fund (PCF) that covers public hospitals and associated physicians. If a suit is brought against a doctor or hospital covered by PCF, they are liable for $100,000 plus interest per patient per incident before PCF pays the excess of this cost. In total, a victim can receive up to $500,000 plus future medical expenses.

As a boutique injury law firm, our clients benefit from working closely with our compassionate attorney. We strive to provide consistent updates and stay in constant communication with our clients throughout the course of their case. When you need a caring advocate willing to fight on your behalf, choose to speak with a St. Tammany Parish medical malpractice lawyer at The Tobey Law Firm.
