Failure to Diagnose an Illness Is a Serious but Common Error — Our Lawyers Will Hold Your Doctor Accountable

Receiving a diagnosis of a serious or terminal illness is very hard to take. Harder still, when you find out that your doctor should have caught this disease early on, when it was still treatable or when the treatment would have been significantly less invasive and expensive. Doctors miss important indicators of diseases all the time, but cover these mistakes up by pretending the discovery is new. If you are a victim of a doctor’s failure to diagnose your disease, our lawyers will expose his or her error.

Sympathy for Your Situation — Aggressive Representation to Show the Harm Done

Tommy Hastings of Hastings Law Firm has more than a decade of experience bringing medical malpractice lawsuits against members of the medical establishment who cause significant harm through negligence. He and his team have obtained millions of dollars in compensation for their clients. This long track record of success shows his care and concern for clients and his well-deserved reputation as one of Texas’ top medical malpractice lawyers.

When you come into our office, you will find a friendly, welcoming environment. All of our staff get to know you and your situation. By taking this relaxed attitude, we are able to think differently about your case. Because we know who you are and what you have suffered, we are more invested in your success.

Finding the Place the Error in Diagnosis Occurred

Doctors order tests, review symptoms and do research to determine what may be affecting you. If they fail to do the proper tests or if they misinterpret the results, your life may be on the line. The most common mistake occurs in communication between physicians or between physicians and medical technicians. A radiologist may not tell your general practitioner about an important mass. A lab technician may not note the levels of a certain indicator in your blood test as significant.

The Most Common Failure to Diagnose Errors Include:

  • Failure to order any tests
  • Failure to act on a patient’s complaints
  • Failure to screen regularly for certain conditions — especially in high-risk patients
  • Failure to recognize symptoms
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Treating the wrong disease
  • Delaying referral to a specialist

Our in-depth medical knowledge and experience in seeing these errors for what they are allow us to find them quickly and hold your doctor accountable for his or her mistake. Our medical malpractice law firm has overcome the many excuses the medical establishment uses to cover up these deadly errors. By exposing them and pursuing maximum compensation for you, we hope to prevent the same harm to patients in the future.

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.
