Medical malpractice in Louisiana

- Obstetric malpractice and birth injury
- Failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis
- Prescription drug error
- Surgical error, including wrong site surgery, anesthesia error, accidental injury during surgery, foreign object left in the body or other serious mistakes
- Unneeded surgery
- Failure to follow up or monitor treatment
- General medical service that falls below an accepted standard of care
