Court records suggest that Louisiana residents, including residents in Baton Rouge, are more likely to experience medical malpractice than residents of any other state. In 2015 alone, Louisiana ranked first among states in total court payouts for medical malpractice lawsuits. If you have experienced medical malpractice — or someone you love is a malpractice victim — you can take comfort in knowing that you don’t need to go through the process of seeking compensation alone. With Broussard & Hart L.L.C., you’ll have an experienced medical malpractice lawyer by your side every step of the way.
In the United States, you are eight times more likely to die at the hands of a negligent doctor than you are to die from an accident caused by a drunk driver. In all, medical malpractice causes 200,000 deaths yearly — all of which could be avoided. If you experience medical malpractice, you have a 31 percent chance of death and an 18 percent chance of experiencing a severe injury.
There are some cases in which a medical patient receives treatment and doesn’t experience the desired outcome. Negative outcomes aren’t always within a doctor’s control. Negative outcomes can also occur because a doctor has failed to do his or her job properly. An expert medical malpractice attorney can help you tell the difference. At Broussard & Hart L.L.C., we have three decades of experience litigating medical malpractice cases. We know how to perform the discovery necessary to build a strong case. We’ll retrieve the records relevant to your case, locate experts who can provide testimony, handle negotiations with the doctor’s insurers and more.
