Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
It is an obvious fact that we go to a hospital or seek medical care to feel better, find a cure or be healed. It is also a fact that in many instances the medical care we receive makes us ill, injures us and, in some cases, causes death.
According to the National Academy of Sciences, Institute of Medicine (“To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System”), between 44,000 to 98,000 Americans die in hospitals each year due to preventable medical errors. At the same time, only one in eight preventable hospital errors result in a malpractice claim, according to a Harvard study. Why so few?
It takes a combination of medical knowledge, legal experience, litigation skills and financial resources to effectively pursue a medical malpractice claim. At Dodson & Hooks, APLC, we are recognized by our referring peers and partnering law firms to possess those qualities of legal experience and financial resources to effectively litigate medical malpractice cases.
