Holding Medical Professionals Accountable For Negligence

Medical professionals can provide essential, life-saving care when health complications arise. Tragically, however, not all medical professionals are as skilled, careful or responsible as may be expected — and that can mean that unsuspecting patients suffer serious harm when medical oversights and mistakes happen.

At Veron, Bice, Palermo & Wilson, LLC, our lawyers are committed to helping people who have been harmed by any type of medical negligence. As local attorneys who have lived in Lake Charles our whole lives, we are invested in this area, and we deeply care that the people of southwest Louisiana are treated fairly, justly and compassionately.

That is why our attorneys are here for you, ready to provide you with support and personal service as we help you recover from the damage caused by medical malpractice. Our primary goal is to bring your case to the best possible resolution so you can focus on healing and restoring your life.
