Personal Injury Legal Services for Medical Malpractice Claims in Greater New Orleans, St. Tammany Parish & the Louisiana Gulf South
What is the difference between Personal Injury law and other types of law?
While Medical Malpractice law falls under the broad category of personal injury, it possesses unique complexities that set it apart.
For one, it often involves highly technical medical information that requires specialized knowledge to interpret. Moreover, these cases often go up against large healthcare institutions and their legal teams, making it crucial to have experienced representation on your side. And unlike criminal law, the objective is not to imprison the healthcare provider but to secure compensation for your injuries and losses.
Navigating the aftermath of a medical malpractice incident can be an overwhelming experience, fraught with physical, emotional, and financial challenges. At Forrest Cressy James, we’re here to help residents of Louisiana.
With our wealth of experience and specialization in Medical Malpractice law, we are committed to fighting for your rights. Contact us today for a consultation tailored to your specific needs.

Surgical Errors: Such as operating on the wrong body part or leaving surgical instruments inside a patient.
Medication Mistakes: Overdosing, underdosing, or prescribing the wrong medication.
Diagnostic Errors: Including misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, which can lead to incorrect treatment or a lack of treatment altogether.
Birth Injuries: Negligence during childbirth that results in harm to the infant or mother.

Why Should I Get Legal Help After an Accident?
If you find yourself in a personal injury situation, seeking legal help is crucial because you deserve fair compensation for the harm you've endured.

A Proven Reputation
"Forrest Cressy James is an amazing law firm that provides tremendous attention and care to all their clients and their needs.
When I was injured in my accident, Nick was never more than a call away from answering my questions and counseling through the process of rehab, recovery, and gaining restitution. I never once felt as if I was just another customer and instead felt like I was a friend and family member who they were willing to fight for to the end.
FCJ will always be the most trusted firm in my book."
“After trying to handle my personal injury claim on my own, and becoming completely overwhelmed, I reached out to Byron for assistance.
My claim was resolved quickly for well over six figures and most importantly, I had peace-of-mind in knowing that I wasn’t taken advantage of by insurance companies.
If you want a law firm that is professional, efficient, and treats you like a person, not just a “file number,” Forrest Cressy James is your team."
"I have had at least two occasions with accidents where the other drivers were not honest with their insurance company. It’s a situation police don’t always have time for right away, and my city has tourists that will treat it as if it never happened.
I can honestly say I didn’t have any stress in the cases. Not from the insurance companies (mine and theirs) and most importantly no pressure from my attorneys.
There was never a moment I felt alone in this. A+ from start to end. I ended up recovering $150,000 thanks to Byron and Eliza."
