Chad Sullivan is a trial lawyer and a Registered Nurse with years of practical experience representing clients in Louisiana's state and federal courts and before administrative panels.  These include the State Board of Nursing and Louisiana Patient’s Compensation Fund.
Chad regularly handles difficult cases involving insurance defense, malpractice, defective products, impaired professionals and licensure claims involving:
  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Pharmacists
  • Nursing homes
  • Physical therapists
  • Home health agencies
Most of his clients are Louisiana-based entities, although, in the case of litigation involving medical devices, most of his clients are out-of-state companies doing business in Louisiana.
Chad applies his nursing experience in his personal injury practice, as well, in claims involving automobile, industrial or other accidents.  This experience is also vital to the complex litigation claims he handles, which include catastrophic accidents resulting in major property loss, serious injury or wrongful death.  His medical background and responsiveness are factors in his frequently being chosen as “Attorney Chairman” in medical malpractice cases, a role chosen by both sides to facilitate the medical review panel process.
As an added asset to his clients, he closely monitors the latest medical developments and advancements in treatment options, including interventional pain management techniques, focusing on outcome results and efficacy.
