Holding Doctors Accountable For Tragic Errors

Whether you are facing an injury or treatable illness, you trust your chosen medical professional to accurately diagnose your situation to develop a course of action. Unfortunately, whether through inattention, defective equipment or general negligence, it is not uncommon for your doctor to misdiagnose your case.

From Lake Charles, the attorneys at Veron, Bice, Palermo & Wilson, LLC, have extensive experience representing injured Louisiana clients. Our staff of dedicated professionals has over 200 years of combined legal experience, and we are prepared to answer difficult questions and represent complex cases.

  • Not listening to patient complaints
  • Not taking an accurate patient history
  • Not performing the right diagnostic tests
  • Failure to correctly read test results
  • Failure to prescribe the right course of action
  • Failure to monitor patient's response to treatment
  • Miscommunication among health care staff
  • Defective or malfunctioning diagnostic equipment

  • Failure to diagnose and/or properly treat cancer
