Greg Feste's Past Case Results

injury case examples

Failure to Diagnose Bowel Obstruction

Greg Feste handled this medical malpractice case involving claims that the general surgeon failed to recognize and treat a worsening bowel obstruction. After several days, the family moved the patient to another hospital. She was promptly taken to the operating room and was diagnosed with necrosis of small and large bowel, volvulus of small bowel with evidence of internal hernia, acute mesenteric ischemia, septic shock, lactic acidosis, and acute renal failure. Due to the delay in treatment, the patient had to have several procedures including extensive removal of her intestines and a colostomy. This resulted in short gut syndrome and likely required lifelong parenteral nutrition. The case was settled before trial for a confidential amount that provided for the client’s long-term care needs.

Failure to Use Bed Alarm on Geriatric Unit Caused Brain Trauma

Greg Feste handled this medical malpractice case involving claims that the nursing staff at a Texas hospital caused a fall resulting in a brain bleed and permanent neurological damage. Despite being labeled a high fall risk in the geriatric unit, a bed alarm was not used. The patient was found on the floor with broken glasses on her face. The head trauma from the fall caused an intracranial hemorrhage and permanent right sided weakness. The case was settled before trial for a confidential amount.

Failure to Diagnose Perforated Bowel After Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Greg Feste handled this wrongful death medical malpractice cases alleging failure to diagnose a perforated bowel after the 17-year-old patient underwent vertical sleeve gastrectomy. Following surgery, the patient complained of abdominal pain and tenderness. Despite these complaints, she was discharged home. The patient returned to the ER a few days later and was diagnosed with severe septic shock and passed away. Autopsy concluded that she died from acute peritonitis due to the perforation of the small bowel following a laparoscopic vertical sleeve gastrectomy. The case settled shortly after filing the lawsuit for a confidential amount.

Failure to Diagnose Perforated Bowel After Hernia Surgery

Greg Feste handled this wrongful death medical malpractice cases alleging delayed diagnosis and negligent treatment of two bowel perforations after a ventral hernia repair surgery. Postoperatively, the patient was lethargic, tachycardic with an elevated white blood count. By the time the surgeon took the patient back to the operating room, the patient was already septic and eventually died from severe sepsis. The case was settled before trial for a confidential amount.

Negligent Gallbladder Surgery

Greg Feste handled this medical malpractice case involving claims that the surgeon failed to properly identify the anatomy during a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and negligently cut the common duct and common hepatic duct. The client returned to the ER a few weeks after surgery complaining of nausea and vomiting. She was diagnosed with a bile leak and underwent several procedures to reconstruct her biliary system. The case was settled before trial for a confidential amount.

Negligent Vancomycin Monitoring

Greg Feste handled this medical malpractice case involving claims of a nursing home and her physicians’ failure to monitor the trough levels of a patient on vancomycin. As a result, the patient continued receiving vancomycin even though her levels were outside of the therapeutic range. The patient had to be hospitalized for acute kidney injury as a result of vancomycin toxicity. The case was settled before trial for a confidential amount.

Alvarado v. Patel MD—Negligent Warfarin Monitoring Led to Stroke and Death

Greg Feste and Tommy Hastings tried this medical malpractice case in Harris County. Dr. Patel was treating Mrs. Alvarado for a-fib with Warfarin, an older, relatively inexpensive anticoagulant that requires frequent blood draws to monitor levels. Plaintiffs’ alleged that she was on Warfarin because Dr. Patel failed to complete the insurance paperwork for her to get Xerelto, a newer anticoagulant that doesn’t require monitoring blood levels and frequently adjustments. At trial, experts on both sides admitted that you had to check the PT/INR levels when taking Warfarin but disagreed on at what frequency. The jury unanimously found that Patel’s negligence proximately caused Alvarado’s death. It awarded the trial plaintiffs $684,000. Patil’s liability for noneconomic damages was capped at $250,000 under Chapter 74 of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code.

Negligent Gallbladder Surgery

Greg Feste handled this medical malpractice case involving a routine laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) in which the surgeon misidentified the anatomy and transected the hepatic artery, hepatic vein, and common bile duct. This caused the patient to need a liver transplant and extensive surgery to repair the bile ducts. The case settled shortly after filing the lawsuit for a confidential amount.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it. Mr. Hastings and his office were always professional, polite, and thorough in explaining my case to me. Big thanks to him and his staff for helping me through this ordeal.

We couldn’t have made a better choice by hiring the Hastings Law Firm to represent us. The staff was always professional but they showed real concern for our case and made it personal. If you need a great law firm, I would happily recommend them.

Tommy is a great guy, genuinely concerned about his clients. This is evident in not only how he runs his firm but the fact that he chose to focus on medmal, something other attorneys have abandoned. If you’re looking for someone that will fight for you tooth and nail, he’s your man.

He is honest, informative, pragmatic and communicated well with us from start to finish. In a sea full of competing attorneys, Tommy has cast a reputation for himself as the very best. I highly recommend his services.

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued, my nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. Tommy Hastings and his staff go above and beyond! I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney!

I can’t say enough great things about this law firm. The staff was friendly and courteous every step of the way. They kept me informed and explained all of my options. Tommy was amazing to work with and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my outcome. If I could give him 10 stars, I would. If you don’t go with Hastings, you are doing yourself a disservice. Highly recommend.

I would highly recommend Tommy and his law firm. He represented us in a case where a simple surgery left my mother permanently disabled. His staff was very professional and diligent and kept me well informed throughout the case. In the end we are happy with the settlement she received and feel lucky to have had Tommy as our attorney.

My brother had an unnecessary surgery which left him with severe neurological issues. We called several attorneys but chose Hastings because of their focus on cases like this. While the case is still pending, we’ve already received a settlement offer that was very close to what we were looking for. Many thanks go out to Tommy and his great team!

We’re blessed to have found the Hastings law firm. Tommy and Greg were outstanding! Both attorneys were very responsive, professional, and helpful with any questions we had about our case. Their entire staff went above and beyond to keep us updated and most of all, calm. My family feels as though we have been made (mostly) whole again. Thank you both for your hard work.
