KIEFER & KIEFER FILES SUIT ON BEHALF OF NURSE WHO WAS ATTACKED BY A PATIENT

By January 17, 2022August 12th, 2022No Comments

Kiefer & Kiefer has filed a lawsuit in the Civil District Court for the Parish of Orleans, which was removed to Federal Court.

We represent an emergency room nurse who was attacked by a patient while she was working.  The patient, who is from Texas and was visiting New Orleans on vacation, got severely intoxicated in the French Quarter.  He left his emergency room and physically attacked our client. Our client sustained serious physical and emotional injuries.

At first, the insurance company questioned that they would have to pay for her damages and our client was represented by another law firm who seemed to agree.  She hired us and we were able to obtain criminal records, NOPD body camera footage and a video of the attack itself to convince them that they had insurance coverage for this incident, which they now admit that they do.

This case is being handled by our partner, Megan Kiefer.
