A sick or injured person relies upon the doctors and nurses
treating him to provide appropriate care. Sadly, not all
medical treatment achieves the intended result; sometimes
the bad outcome is caused by medical malpractice. The
disappointed patient or his surviving family members want
to find answers to explain what happened, often seeking
help from an attorney. In Louisiana, the health care industry
is heavily protected, making it critically important for sick or
injured patients to obtain legal advice from attorneys who are
capable of handling this complicated and sensitive area of
Louisiana law. For 35 years, John Hammons has concentrated
his law practice in the area of medical negligence.
NELSON & HAMMONS, APLC
EXPERIENCED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE.
Medical malpractice litigation requires a unique devotion to
detail and an appreciation for the nuances of the law, along with
a keen understanding of applicable medical standards. Having
focused his practice exclusively on medical malpractice litigation,
Hammons has developed the skills, the knowledge of law and
medicine and the experience to provide superior representation
to his clients. In the past 10 years, he has obtained recoveries for
meritorious claims totaling more than $80,000,000.
COMPASSIONATE AND PRACTICAL.
Practicing this type of law is challenging and rewarding for
Hammons. Every potential client who seeks help from Hammons
has suffered a disappointment and quite
often a tragic, permanent loss. When
making a decision to investigate and pursue
a medical malpractice claim, Hammons
is highly selective because the overall
process is time-consuming, expensive and
emotionally difficult for clients and counsel.
Hammons’ commitment to a professional
and thorough approach has resulted in his
successful representation of hundreds of
medical malpractice clients.
