Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Covington, LA

Covington, LA medical malpractice lawyer Tammy Karas Griggs provides unparalleled representation for families and victims of medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is the result of a patient being harmed by a physician (or other medical professionals) who did not perform competently or in negligence while performing the necessary medical duties. As a patient entering a procedure, you believe that your doctor is competent in his skill sets to perform the procedure without fail. When that physician fails to demonstrate that competency and performs in negligence, you have the right to file a malpractice claim. You will need the assistance of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer to attentively review the facts surrounding your case. In the state of Louisiana, there are certain regulations and protocols that need to be reviewed to prove negligence was a factor. Contact Tammy Karas Griggs Attorney At Law and get you the max compensation you deserve for your medical expenses resulting from your doctor’s malpractice.

Do You Have a Medical Malpractice Claim?

There are certain regulations and attributes that must be met to prove that you have a malpractice claim. Our medical malpractice lawyer will take a proactive approach to determine whether all of the below are true and construct a comprehensive strategy that is most advantageous for you.

  • A doctor-patient relationship must have existed: for a medical malpractice case to be valid, there must have been a relationship where the patient has hired the doctor to perform a medical duty.
  • The doctor was negligent and negligent actions caused harm: you must be able to prove that the doctor performed his medical duties in negligence and that the negligent actions were a direct cause of the suffering that resulted. A lawyer is crucial for proving this point because you must be able to demonstrate that a competent doctor could have performed the same duties without harm.
  • The injury led to suffering or damages: you must be able to prove that the malpractice actions of your physician actually caused some type of suffering or harm. Even if your doctor performed incompetently, if no harm resulted from the malpractice, you cannot file a claim. Typical injuries include physical pain, additional medical expenses (to amend the doctor’s negligent actions), lost earning capacity as a result of injuries, and mental anguish.
