Medical Negligence

When individuals seek treatment from a medical professional, they place their trust in that professional's ability to render proper medical care. When that trust is shattered by negligence or incompetent conduct, the consequences can be significant and long-lasting. Unfortunately, the judicial system is unable to return the injured person to the health they enjoyed before the negligent treatment; however, it can offer monetary relief that will ease the financial burdens caused by negligent medical care.

To best serve our clients and the community as a whole, LaCourse Law will only bring a medical malpractice case against a healthcare professional, doctor, hospital, or other institution if the claim has been fully investigated, reviewed, and validated as being meritorious by a recognized expert in the field. We also, in this way, can prevent filing “frivolous lawsuits.”

Patients bringing medical malpractice claims face a daunting challenge. Medical malpractice litigation is highly complex and selecting a skilled attorney to represent your claim is important in reaching a successful resolution.

Because of the complexity of medical malpractice actions, it is important that they are pursued as soon as possible after the negligent conduct. Medical records and bills have to be gathered and reviewed by an expert to confirm the existence of negligent conduct. A lawsuit and expert report must then be filed. Of course, these things take a great deal of time, energy and resources. Therefore, it is important for anyone who believes they have a medical malpractice claim to have their case reviewed as soon as possible.
