Our Texas Medical Malpractice Lawyers Help You Hold Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable

We rely on doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to properly diagnose illnesses, correctly perform medical procedures and provide careful treatment when we are sick. As in all professions, mistakes are made and sadly it is the patients who suffer an injury, illness (or worse) as a result. It is not uncommon for medical professionals to try and cover up their mistakes and this can result in the injury or illness becoming more serious.

Due to the high volume of medical malpractice cases in Texas, the hospitals, doctors, nurses and insurance companies ensure that they have many protections in place in the form of knowledgeable defense attorneys. Accordingly, you require the representation of an equally experienced attorney to obtain a successful result. Hastings Law Firm P.C. can assist in helping you prove that malpractice has occurred resulting in an injury to yourself or a loved one (whether due to a surgical error, misdiagnosis or other negligent practice).

Preventable surgical mistakes, or surgical never events, occur all too often, putting patients at risk for worsened medical conditions or death. People in the Houston Metro area, and throughout Texas, frequently require surgical interventions. This may be to repair internal damage, treat the symptoms of certain medical ailments or to address other conditions. When going under the knife, patients generally expect their conditions to improve, [...]

Texas Medical Malpractice Questions

Medical mistakes do happen but not all such accidents are considered malpractice. Despite an adverse outcome or even death, Texas law requires that anyone injured in a medical setting must be able to prove the following:

  • That a doctor-patient relationship existed
  • That a medical professional or hospital was “negligent” in the care they provided or that a sub-standard level of care was evident
  • That the patient suffered damages, also called “quantifiable harm”, as a result of the negligent medical care
We handle all medical malpractice cases on a contingency basis meaning you pay nothing upfront but agree to pay a percentage when your case is won or a settlement is reached.
Future medical costs will be considered in the damages awarded or in a settlement if it is determined that you will need additional treatment because of the injuries sustained in your case.
Medical malpractice is considered a “personal injury” and is subject to a statute of limitations. Under Texas law a patient for medical malpractice must file their lawsuit within two years from the date the malpractice occurred. If an exact data cannot be determined, the limit will be two years from the end of treatment or hospitalization.
Upon initial contact we can usually provide an opinion on whether or not we believe you have a likely claim just by reviewing your records and patient history. We cannot provide a definitive answer until one of our medical experts has reviewed all of your records. The time required depends on the complexity of the situation and the type of medical procedures involved. The process can take from a few days to several weeks.
In short, no. While medical professionals are required to act quickly and competently without doing unnecessary harm to a patient, they are not required to be perfect. Unsuccessful results from a treatment or surgery alone are not grounds for a medical malpractice case; however, if poor results were due to negligence then malpractice may have occurred.
