Proving Causation In Medical Malpractice

How Can You Show the Cause & Effect in a Medical Negligence Lawsuit?

injury case examples

You have discovered that you host an incurable disease and your hospital should have diagnosed it six months before when you first developed signs of the disease. Or you had an operation and now you have ongoing agony as a result of improper postsurgical care. You’re aware that you have suffered medical negligence and you now need to provide evidence.

Dedicated, Skilled and Committed to Justice

The attorneys of Hastings Law Firm have been demonstrating in lawsuits as to how a negligent mistake has caused a specific injury for over 10 years. We are highly experienced in the complex area of medical malpractice and this enables us to determine how a mistake has happened and who is responsible. We represent those who, like you, have sustained harm due to malpractice and we have secured millions of dollars on their behalf. Our impressive record of victories demonstrates how committed we are to ensuring responsible medical professionals are held accountable.

Our firm is a comfortable and relaxed office. All of our staff connect with you and your story and this helps us learn how you have suffered as a result of the harm done to you. We find that this means we invest in you on a personal level and are all the more dedicated to work hard for justice on your behalf.

The 50% Mandate

Throughout Texas, the 50% mandate is how responsibility is decided in medical malpractice cases. For example, if two vehicles crash and one is clearly responsible but no injury was caused, one driver is responsible but there is no lawsuit if there is no injury or loss. This is how medical negligence cases are argued also. You must have evidence that the negligent action caused damage to you at a rate of 50% or higher.

Analyzing all of your medical data helps us prove causation. We also review relevant medical articles and numerical data. Our lawyers can ask for a second medical opinion if necessary. We also discuss your case with medical experts to see if your doctor or hospital strayed from their duty of care to you.

Our findings, together with a calculation of the extra expense resulting from the harm to you, are used to pursue the highest possible compensation on your behalf.

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.

Gus Morton

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.
