Baton Rouge Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Doctors, nurses, and other medical providers sometimes make mistakes that affect families for the rest of their lives.

Medical malpractice, simply put, occurs when your medical provider deviates from the normal standard of care. Medical providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the standards of care for the profession involved. If a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or other medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care, then that provider may be liable for an injured person’s damages. Though the majority of health care providers do good work, mistakes are sometimes made which could adversely affect a person for the rest of his or her life. Baton Rouge Attorney Erik M.
