we will do it together
We put our confidence in doctors, nurses, and other healthcare experts to provide excellent care. Doctors, nurses, and other medical practitioners are kept to a high standard of treatment, which they generally follow. However, this duty may often be neglected, and you can be harmed by the individual who was supposed to aid you.
When a medical professional acts negligently or fails to act when medical practitioners with comparable qualifications and expertise may have acted differently, they are delivering treatment that falls short of the standard of care.
A patient can be injured or die as a result of this neglect. If something happens to you or a loved one, you can contact our Texas medical malpractice attorney who will help you file and settle your claim.
If you were injured as a result of a doctor’s, hospitals, surgeons, dentists, or other health care provider’s negligence, we are prepared to battle for your rights.
Medical malpractice arises when a patient is injured as a result of a doctor’s or other health care professional’s negligent act or failure to act, or as a result of a hospital’s or other medical institution’s policies.
Failure to properly diagnose, track, or perform surgery, failure to communicate or warn patients of complications, failure to properly administer, and even inappropriate or improper usage of equipment are all examples of medical malpractice claims.
It’s important to remember that this list isn’t exhaustive; rather, it’s meant to serve as an example.
Due to a law passed in 2003 that restricts noneconomic damages that can be recovered, medical malpractice cases in Texas are more difficult than in other states. Because of this legislation and the obstacles that must be met to have a successful case, many Texas attorneys no longer take on medical malpractice cases, but we are ready to fight for you despite all the challenges.
Medical Malpractice Cases We Handle
Our firm can handle a wide range of medical malpractice cases, including:
Deadline to File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit in Texas
The statute of limitations, or the time period under which you must file a lawsuit to be rewarded, is an important aspect of Texas medical malpractice law. The law in Texas is very stringent on this, allowing you just two years from the date of the negligent act to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. If you believe you might have a case, you should not wait until the last minute to contact a medical malpractice lawyer because these cases require time to investigate due to the need for records retrieval and expert analysis.
Is There a Cap on Medical Malpractice Damages?
The number of monetary damages a claimant may recover in a successful medical malpractice claim in Texas is limited. Noneconomic damages are set at $250,000 for all doctor and health care practitioner defendants involved in the accident. The total liability of a single hospital is set at $250,000, and the total liability of all hospital defendants is capped at $500,000.
