Need To Take Action Against Doctor Errors? We’re Here To Help

On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Doctor Errors on Sunday, April 19, 2015.

Were you aware that roughly 98,000 deaths are blamed on doctor errors every year? That is nearly 100,000 deaths that could have possibly been avoided. Sadly, doctor errors occur all too frequently in Texas, and it is very likely that victims are unaware that a mistake has been made until the damage is already done. This is the main reason why you should get legal counseling immediately from a medical mistake law firm in Houston Texas right after you are aware that medical malpractice occurred.

Patients typically place their full trust in the doctors who are treating them and, at face value, why not? After all, doctors and other health care professionals spend years studying, training and passing various medical boards in order to treat and care for the sick and injured. Despite such a rigorous background, even avoidable mistakes still occur, and medical professionals rarely seem willing to own up to those mistakes.

However, the ability to recognize and admit that a mistake has occurred is also an important aspect of health care. If everyone involved is aware of an error in diagnosis or treatment, actions can be taken to correct the mistake and hopefully set the patient back on track with minimal long-term impact. Sadly, the medical profession seems to be engaged in a culture dedicated to covering up mistakes rather than admitting to them. Although doctors might feel as though they are protecting their careers, in reality they are causing additional harm to patients, which does not reflect the caring attitude that most people seek in a provider.

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. Bug 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.

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.

Kellie Rhodes

Tommy Hastings went above and beyond during my crisis. He genuinely cares about his clients and delivered a straight-forward, honest method to resolve my issue as quick as possible. If you want the best of the best then look no further. You’ve found him.

Kendall Webb

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!

Joy Love

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.

Misty Peterson

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.

Earica Robert

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.
