Experienced Medical Malpractice Attorneys

New Orleans, Louisiana

Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals sometimes fail to fulfill the basic standards of care. Unfortunately, they almost never admit such mistakes, despite the fact that a deviation from standards of care can cause serious injuries and even death.

Doctors won’t tell you they committed medical malpractice. Too often death and injuries are swept under the rug as a complication and doctors claim they did all they can do – there are no normal or acceptable mistakes.

Under the current legal climate, if you or a loved one find yourselves to be victims of malpractice, you need an experienced team of attorneys who have focused a significant portion of their careers to the pursuit of medical negligence claims against healthcare providers.  Our office has devoted substantial recourses to these claims, representing the majority of our work as Plaintiff attorneys. With years of experience, we know what claims should be pursued and those that should not. With that said, we take pride in the fact that the work we do in the area of medical malpractice improves the overall quality of healthcare rendered to the citizens of our community by deterring bad conduct and ensuring that healthcare providers pay attention to detail.  All lives matter and we deserve competent quality care when we are in need.

When we take your case, we fight hard to make sure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.  We pursue the claims on a contingency basis, and you do not owe us anything unless we obtain a positive result for you.  Consultations are free. Call us today and we can discuss your case.

You deserve the truth, and our medical malpractice legal team at Capitelli & Wicker will help you find it. If we find evidence of medical malpractice, we will work to get you the compensation you deserve.

Louisiana's Medical Malpractice Act is one of the most healthcare provider friendly in the United States, with especially protective malpractice limitation laws

  • Private health care providers who qualify under the Louisiana Medical Malpractice Act are not liable for an amount in excess of $100,000, plus interest thereon and certain costs, for all malpractice claims because of injuries to or death of any one patient.
  • The total amount recoverable for all malpractice claims for injuries to or death of a patient, exclusive of future medical care and related benefits shall not exceed $500,000, plus interest and certain costs. The $500,000 cap on damages includes lost wages and earning capacity regardless of the amount lost.
  • Before a lawsuit can be filed in court, the case must be presented to a Medical Review Panel made up of three physicians who review the case and render an opinion.
  • Medical malpractice cases must be brought within one year of (1) the date of malpractice or (2) the date the patient or his/her family “discovered” the malpractice, and in no event more than three years after the date of malpractice.

These are just some of the protections which are afforded to healthcare providers in the State of Louisiana.  To avoid the minefield of legal pitfalls, you need attorneys who have devoted their careers to protecting patients who have become victims of malpractice – Attorneys who will not let those same healthcare providers victimize you again when asserting your rights.
