Medical malpractice suit alleges surgeries were unnecessary

When a doctor informs a patient that he or she has cancer, most Louisiana residents would feel it was important to act -- and act fast. Typically, a patient will want to follow that doctor's advice no matter what it involved, particularly if it meant a chance of surviving a life-threatening illness. Patients everywhere rely on their doctors' guidance for their health and well-being, and if a physician indicates that surgery is the best -- or only -- option for survival, the typical person would have little choice but to trust the advice of a medical professional. Imagine, then, following through on such an invasive, life-altering operation only to discover after it was too late that the doctors had been wrong? This nightmare scenario is exactly what a medical malpractice lawsuit in another state is alleging took place.

80s icon Corey Feldman says drug charges will be dropped

Louisiana fans of 1980s movies starring Corey Feldman may be closely following a developing story involving the former actor turned singer. Feldman and several members of his band were recently traveling through this state on tour, but their plans were interrupted by police. They are now facing drug charges for marijuana possession.

Protect your rights against faulty drunk driving charges

What if you were pulled over by Louisiana police and wound up being accused of a misdemeanor crime? That's likely not the way you thought your day would end. In fact, perhaps, just hours before, you had been enjoying conversation, good food and a few drinks with your friends at your favorite local restaurant. Now, you're completely uncertain how the night will end, as well as what your future may hold because you know that facing drunk driving charges is no small matter.

Did the VA cover up incidents of medical malpractice by a doctor?

For their service to the United States, veterans here in Louisiana and across the country deserve quality health care. Unfortunately, that does not always happen, and now lawmakers may be taking steps to help change that. The impetus for change was the discovery of a doctor who may have committed numerous acts of medical malpractice, and the VA kept it quiet.

Drug charges do not necessarily have to mean a criminal record

Experimentation is the hallmark of youth. As young adults here in Louisiana and elsewhere attempt to find their place in the world, they can make mistakes that put them squarely in the sights of the criminal justice system. This does not necessarily mean that they will end up with a criminal record, which could affect their future endeavors such as going to college. First-time offenders often have other options that can keep their records clean and give them a chance to put the mistake behind them. This can happen with all sorts of issues, including drug charges.

Will family file wrongful death claim after losing a child?

Losing a child may be the worst tragedy that many Louisiana parents could ever think of experiencing. Even in the face of such a tragedy, one family that lost a 5-year-old decided to give the gift of life to others by donating his organs. That may not keep them from pursuing some justice and restitution for his death through the filing of a wrongful death claim, however.

3 advantages first-time offenders can benefit from

Whether it be robbery, drug possession, battery or any other illegal activity, you should never take criminal charges lightly. This is especially true given the fact that a conviction will have serious consequences on your life. If you are a first-time offender charged with a crime, there are several advantages you may have that could help you get your life back on track.

Man loses brother in alleged drunk driving accident

Spending time with family members is a favorite past time of many Louisiana residents. One activity they may enjoy together is going out for a drink or two. The problem arises when one or two drinks become too many. Getting behind the wheel after that could lead to a drunk driving accident that costs one family member his or her life and, potentially, the other his or her freedom.
