We are the people to call when you have problems with medical malpractice or need to know how to deal with caregiver abuse. Our law firm does not offer legal help for simple, everyday personal injury claims.
We help people who are injured or killed by the negligence of others. We manage personal injury cases filed against individuals and companies, including fighting with insurance companies.
Reason #1: You could hurt your chances to get a good settlement. Chances are, you will probably be contacted by the responsible party's lawyers or insurance company. You should NOT communicate with them until you have had a consultation with attorney Bobby Lormand. When you make comments or answer questions the information you provided could be twisted against you. Without the protection of a personal injury lawyer you could damage the strength of your case.
Reason #2: There are tight time deadlines to file a case. In Louisiana, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed within one year of the date of death. It takes time to sufficiently prepare and file a wrongful death lawsuit. Furthermore, as time goes by a witness can move away, or forget important details that make your claim credible and undeniable. This is especially tragic if your lawsuit advances to a jury trial.

Unlike the typical personal injury claim, these cases are complex and require extensive research and documentation.

Represented the surviving family in a medical malpractice case against a hospital and an interventional radiologist. As a result of the nurses failing to document the patient was receiving blood thinners, and the physician failing to identify that the patient was on blood thinners, her blood thinners were not stopped before she underwent a liver biopsy. Following the liver biopsy, although while in recovery her lab work showed that she was bleeding and her vital signs evidenced her blood pressure was trending down, she was discharged to go home. Once she returned home, her condition continued to deteriorate due to her internal bleeding and she collapsed. Her husband called 911 and she was transferred by helicopter to another hospital. Despite aggressive efforts to resuscitate the patient, she died due to excessive blood loss. We represented the husband and the deceased patient’s three surviving adult children. The matter was settled in the amount that was acceptable to the family.
Represented the patient and his wife in a medical malpractice case against a family medicine physician for failure to diagnose malignant melanoma. When the patient went to the doctor’s office with complaints of a lesion on his back, the physician did not perform a biopsy of the lesion. Instead, he simply concluded that it was a benign and noncancerous lesion. Even though the patient continued to bring it to his attention for the next two years, the doctor maintained the opinion that it was a benign and noncancerous lesion. When the lesion showed significant growth, both in diameter and in height, the patient’s wife told her husband that if the doctor continued to refuse to remove the lesion, she wanted him to see another doctor. When the patient explained to the doctor what his wife wanted, he removed the lesion and send it to pathology to be examined. Pathology returned the diagnosis of malignant melanoma and further documented that all of the lesion had not been removed. As such, the patient had to undergo surgery to remove a large area from his back. At the time of surgery it was also determined that the melanoma had spread into the lymph nodes. Therefore, after surgery, the patient was started on interferon. The interferon treatment caused the patient to have many side effects to the point that the patient decided that his quality of life was so bad with the interferon, he did not want to continue the treatment. The patient developed a recurrence of the melanoma in his armpit and had to have additional surgery. Following the second surgery the radiological imaging showed that he was cancer free. We settled the case for the full amount of the Louisiana medical malpractice cap and additionally the cost of his medical and surgical care.
