Getting your medical malpractice claim past the review panel

The fact of the matter is that not everything that goes wrong with a patient is due to negligence. Some medical results are due to known risks associated with a procedure, injury or illness. This is why all medical malpractice claims in Louisiana must first go through a medical review panel to determine whether there is, in fact, a claim.

Many claims do not make it past this stage of the process. Without an attorney who understands how to prepare for these panels, your claim might not make it through either. After discussing your situation, he or she will gather all of the relevant documentation, consult with medical professionals and prepare your case to go before the panel.

Understanding what the panel is looking for and what questions to ask is essential to success. Going before the panel creates a foundation for taking your claim to trial. The questions asked by panel members could expose areas of your case that require more work.

If your claim is approved by the medical review panel, those areas that need more investigation or evidence in preparation for trial will become a priority. Even if settlement prospects exist, your attorney should be preparing to take your case before a judge and jury. The medical professionals, facilities and insurers on the other side need to know that you are confident and prepared.

Suffering serious injury or losing a loved one to medical negligence is heartbreaking. You deserve someone on your side who will show you the compassion you deserve while aggressively fighting for you. Successfully proving medical malpractice to a Louisiana court could provide you the restitution you need in order to relieve the financial burdens you and your family sustained because of a medical mistake.
