Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Birth Injury • Misdiagnosis • Surgical Errors
Have you learned that a serious medical condition could have been prevented? Do doctors refuse to give you answers about how your child's birth injury occurred? Did a routine surgery turn bad? If you or a loved one has suffered an injury while in the care of a medical professional, you may have a claim for medical malpractice.
Doctors, nurses, surgeons, and other health care professionals are held to a standard of care. When negligence or substandard care causes injury or wrongful death, these health care professionals should be held accountable. At Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law, we help clients find answers and pursue justice. Contact our Louisiana injury lawyers to discuss your case.
We handle medical malpractice cases involving:
- Birth injuries: We help parents overcome the devastation of learning their child has suffered a permanent injury due to medical negligence and help them find answers, justice, and compensation. We handle birth injury cases involving cerebral palsy (CP), erb's palsy, shoulder dystocia, brain injuries, and other birth injury cases.
- Surgical errors: Many people are weary of surgery, yet everything works out fine. However, for an unfortunate few, the surgery actually causes more harm than good. At Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law, we represent victims who have suffered due to surgical mistakes or errors. These cases often involve surgical instruments or sponges that are left in after the surgery site is closed, spliced nerves or blood vessels cause by scalpel slips, anesthesia overdose, or other errors in surgery. We fight for full financial recovery.
- Misdiagnosis: Medical professionals are trusted to be experts. When something is wrong, we go to them for answers. However, when symptoms are ignored or mistreated, disastrous results occur - a treatable disease gets diagnosed too late, an unnecessary surgery occurs, a patient dies that could have been saved. Our law office advocates for people who have suffered due to a doctor's misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, or failure to diagnose a condition.
