Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed because of a negligent act or omission by a doctor or other medical professional. Negligence by a medical professional may include errors in diagnosis, treatment, or illness management. According to a recent report by HealthGrades, medical errors by hospitals harm up to one in 25 patients admitted to the hospital. This number would be even higher if researchers at HealthGrades factored in mistakes at nursing homes, outpatient settings and doctors' offices. As Dr. Samantha Collier, vice president of medical affairs at HealthGrades puts it, "the equivalent of 390 jumbo jets full of people are dying each year due to likely preventable, in-hospital medical errors, making this one of the leading killers in the United States."


Mesothelioma is a very rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. It develops in the tissue that covers the internal organs, called the mesothelium. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with this deadly and aggressive disease, the mesothelioma lawyers with Harrell & Nowak, serving the state of Louisiana, can help you secure the compensation you deserve.

Premises Liability

If you are injured while on property that belongs to someone else, the property owner can be held responsible if the accident was caused by his own negligence. Property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for guests, customers, clients, employees, and other visitors. Under premises liability law, victims can seek compensation for their hospital bills, lost wages, and other expenses. A personal injury accident attorney at our practice can guide you through every step of the judicial process.

Environmental Hazards

Companies and landowners in Louisiana sometimes violate federal, state and local environmental laws which regulate the discharge of toxic wastes and other pollutants into the environment. Sometimes they decide that it’s cheaper to pollute than to prevent toxic and chemical exposure to innocent people. The attorneys of Harrell & Nowak, lawyers serving New Orleans, Metairie, Kenner, and areas throughout Louisiana, have spent years litigating against these negligent parties.

Insurance Disputes

Insurance companies owe policyholders a duty of good faith and fair dealing when it comes to handling an insurance claim. This means that the insurance company must process claims fairly and promptly. Post-Katrina, insurance companies have been minimizing payments by denying claims, assessing damage below repair costs and relying on so-called "flood exemptions" to keep from paying claims they owe. If you file a legitimate claim with your insurance company, and it is denied or underpaid, then the insurance company may have violated the insurance contract and acted in "bad faith." Under Louisiana law, an insurance company that acts in bad faith may have to pay attorney fees and damages.
