If you are like most Louisiana residents, you likely have undergone surgery at some point in your life. You may even have an upcoming surgery already scheduled. Naturally you expect your surgeon, and all the other members of the surgical team, to know what they are doing and to do it properly. You do not expect anyone to make a mistake.
It is illegal in Louisiana to drive a motorized vehicle of any kind while under the influence of alcohol. Unfortunately, individuals who do so may cause car crashes that result in severe bodily harm. If you sustained injuries in a car accident caused by an intoxicated driver, they might be liable. At MGM Attorneys, we have experience working with clients, preparing accident claims and identifying the compensation source.
Having a surgical procedure can cause apprehension in Louisiana patients. You expect the team that cares for you while under anesthetic take the best care of you under such circumstances. However, if the unthinkable happens and the surgeon performs the wrong procedure or the correct procedure on the wrong body part, the results can be disastrous. At MGM Attorneys, we have experience representing clients with medical malpractice claims.
Louisiana roadways are more congested than ever before. Big rigs carrying full loads and hauling tandem trailers require more room to stop and make turns than passenger vehicles. If you are in an accident with an 18-wheeler, severe injuries with devastating effects can result. At the law offices of MGM Attorneys, we often represent clients seriously injured in a multi-vehicle crash involving a commercial truck.
The accidental death of a loved one is a worst case scenario. No one expects to receive the phone call advising them of a tragedy or that alarming knock on the door from law enforcement. Most people experience profound shock and denial in the wake of a fatal crash.
The law of Louisiana requires a motorist involved in a car accident to stay at the scene until authorities give permission to leave. Failure to do so often makes a bad situation worse for a driver deemed to be at fault in a crash. An investigation into an alleged hit-and-run in Livingston Parish, Louisiana, began very early Saturday morning and resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old woman believed to be the driver of a vehicle that crashed into a motorcycle, leaving its operator dead and his passenger injured.
Couples in Louisiana who have difficulty conceiving may turn to fertility drugs to induce ovulation. These pharmaceuticals may help you to conceive on your own, or they may be the first step in the process of in vitro fertilization. In either case, however, use of fertility drugs may have unintended consequences, one of which is ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
