Legal Answers
7 Questions Answered

Q. My brother had colon cancer surgery on last week. He did good until 2 days ago. They did not mark the arear they guess.
A: It could be malpractice, but you will need to have his records reviewed by a doctor within that particular field. Please understand that not every mistake, misdiagnosis, or bad result is malpractice. It is only malpractice if there is a failure to follow the standard of care as established by physicians practicing in that field. Also, the sole jurisdiction for any cause of action for what has happened to your brother would be in Michigan. So, you need to consult an attorney from Michigan.
Q. Can I sue hospitals and especially nursing Facility who ignored procedure causing my mom's burst abdomin!
A: Under the Louisiana Medical Malpractice Act, you will first need to file a request for review by a medical review panel before you can file suit. Because of the special nature of medical malpractice claims, it is important that you consult with an attorney who does medical malpractice. Please remember you only have one year from your mother's death in which to file your request for review.
Q. there Is a lot of blank pages in my deceased fathers medical care report and other odd stuff .
A: These are questions which cannot be answered without further review of the records either by an attorney or another physician. Blank pages and late signings are not unusual practices in and of themselves to warrant suspicion. Please keep in mind that you only have one year from the date of the deceased's death in which to file a request for review by a medical review panel. The Louisiana Medical Malpractice Act requires all claims of medical malpractice be submitted for review by a medical review panel.
