Sadly, it’s not uncommon for healthcare professionals to try and hide their mistakes to avoid a legal issue or a malpractice claim being filed with their insurance company. Such actions can leave health care accident victims with lifelong injuries, trauma or a condition that becomes more severe.

Trial Lawyers for Medical Malpractice Litigation

Texas medical malpractice cases are well known as being very difficult to win, so much so that most personal injury law firms do not accept them - and when they do they just refer them out to other attorneys. Not only are the cases complex, requiring both extensive medical and legal knowledge, but the laws concerning negligence in Texas tend to favor the medical industry. Our Dallas attorneys consult with medical experts and financial experts across the country to obtain in-depth medical knowledge, which includes an understanding of the cost of a medically induced injury over a lifetime. This allows us to determine and prove to the courts the exact amount of compensation you are due.

The medical community has many deterrents in place to avoid being found accountable for its mistakes. We know how to remove these obstacles using the legal and medical systems together. We have established a reputation with the medical community of being aggressive but fair – this tends to make the opposing parties open to resolving cases efficiently. That said, we never settle for less than you deserve. We’re here to help you get the care you need and the compensation you are entitled to for the harm done to you.

Common Medical Malpractice Questions

Trial Lawyers for Medical Malpractice Litigation

The statute of limitations for a medical injury lawsuit is two years from the date the malpractice occurred. If an exact date cannot be determined, then the limit is based on the end of treatment or hospitalization. However, in practice an attorney typically needs a minimum of 3 months to fully research and prepare the case for filing. This means an injured party has 18 - 21 months AFTER the incident occurred to start the claim process with an attorney.

The Hastings Law Firm accepts medical malpractice and personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid if you are awarded damages by the court or we reach an agreed settlement with the defendant. We cover all the upfront expenses involved in researching, preparing, and litigating your case.

For an event to be considered "Medical Malpractice" in Texas there must be evidence to prove the following: That a medical professional or facility violated Standards of Care; that negligence resulted in an injury to the patient; and that the injury resulted in significant damages. Those damages can be economic in nature, as well as physical and mental.

In short, no. Texas law has made medical malpractice cases very difficult and expensive to litigate and the caps on compensation mean that it can often cost more to pursue a case than you can receive in damages. These cases also require costly expert review and testimony from medical professionals and many hours of deposition. Since personal injury attorneys are paid on a contingency fee basis, they simply cannot accept cases that do not involve serious injuries.

In 2003, the State of Texas placed caps on the total amount of non-economic damages one can receive for a medical malpractice lawsuit. You can be awarded a maximum of $250,000 total from ALL health care providers involved, and up to $500,000 for all healthcare facilities involved, for a total of $750,000. In addition to this you can be awarded economic damages to cover items such as medical costs and lost wages. In rare cases you may also be awarded punitive damages, which are meant to punish a healthcare professional who has committed malpractice out of maliciousness. Finally, some cases involving healthcare are not medical malpractice and not subject to these limits; some examples are injury from a defective medical device or prescription drugs.
