Medical Malpractice Suit Follows Doctor’s Alleged Negligence
On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Houston Attorney for Doctor Error on Monday, May 9, 2016.
It is not uncommon for people in Texas to put complete trust in their physicians and believe they know best, because, after all, they spent many years studying medicine. Unfortunately, many patients are disillusioned and disappointed when inadequate or negligent care by doctors leads to additional expenses, along with pain and suffering. Being a victim of medical malpractice can have far-reaching physical, emotional and financial consequences.
A medical group and one of the doctors in its employ is currently facing a lawsuit that was filed by a woman who alleges negligent medical care. Apparently, the complaint arose after the plaintiff suffered a fractured left femoral neck — the flattened bone that connects the hip and the shaft of the femur. According to the lawsuit, she consulted with the doctor in April 2014, and he allegedly decided against performing surgery at that time.
According to court documents, the plaintiff was diagnosed with a closed displaced fracture less than a year later. This necessitated a total replacement of her left hip on March 24, 2015. The alleged negligence includes the physician’s failure to diagnose the fractured hip and also the failure to explain the risks of not doing the surgery after the first consultation.
The plaintiff is pursuing recovery of the damages she suffered as the result of the negligent medical care. These damages include continued pain and suffering, along with medical expenses, and also past and future lost wages. With the guidance of an experienced medical malpractice attorney, victims of medical negligence may be able to navigate successful claims in Texas civil courts.
