Common Medical Malpractice Questions

medical mistake

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 occured 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 expenses involved in researching and preparing, and litigating your case.

For an event to be considered "Medical Malpractice" 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.

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.

Fantastic law firm! Getting our negligence case settled took longer than originally expected but in the end the results were well worth it.

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.

Ernie Wolford

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.

Tommy Hastings and his staff provided a much needed voice for us during our crisis. His attention to detail went beyond the scope of simply practicing law. 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 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!

Devin Schumacher

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.
