An experienced attorney for your medical malpractice case
Lafayette medical malpractice attorney Sera Russell has extensive experience, having tried 33 medical malpractice cases. There aren’t many plaintiffs’ lawyers in the state of Louisiana who can match that experience. However, people who have been injured by medical malpractice should keep in mind that the vast majority of cases settle out of court. Our firm prepares for the possibility of trial, using this preparation to obtain the best results for our injured clients. We work hard to ensure our clients receive maximum compensation, including up to the current $500,000 recovery limit when necessary.
Medical malpractice claims arise when a doctor, surgeon, nurse or other health care professional or facility deviates from the accepted standard of care. Claims can arise from situations such as the following:
- Failure to diagnose and treat cancer and other illnesses
- Surgical errors
- Untreated complications of surgery
- Misdiagnosis/wrong diagnosis
- Anesthesia errors
- Medication errors
- Emergency room negligence
- Errors during labor and delivery resulting in injuries to mother or baby/birth injuries
If possible, we encourage clients to obtain their medical records after the procedure. This same action taken by an attorney can cause medical personnel to alter the records to protect themselves from a medical malpractice claim.
The Law Office of Sera H. Russell, III has developed a network of talented doctors in virtually every area of medical specialty. We work with and rely upon the expertise of these professional and highly competent doctors.
