  Malpractice—improper, illegal, or negligent professional activity or treatment, especially by a medical practitioner, lawyer, or public official.
 
  The Statue of Limitations for Malpractice in the state of Louisiana is only ONE YEAR. 94% of the United States either range in time frame depending on injury or has 2+ years to file for Malpractice lawsuits. By extending this time, this gives people who have been injured, neglected, misdiagnosed, etc. the time they need to take legal action against health care providers.

  One year is not ample time for most people to file such lawsuits for many reasons, whether it be personal or financial. Extending time gives Louisiana residents a chance to acquire legal justice when all other options have been been exhausted. 

  This petition will assist in the extension of the malpractice limitation in the state of Louisiana and could help many in reference to the time frame of which they can file for such lawsuits.
