These facts, alone, would not warrant a malpractice lawsuit. You must prove harm from the malpractice. Medical malpractice means that a doctor violated the standard of care. A bad outcome is not enough. Another doctor would be needed to evaluate what the doctors did.
A Louisiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. Additional information is needed. It could depend on the basis for the doctor's position, the patient's concerns, the carrier's coverage, and other possible factors. Good luck

Also check unclaimed money under State of Louisiana--if they mailed you a check and no one got it the money might be sitting there. Even better, find out from the court who represented you--what attorney. They should be able to tell you the details.
