If You Acquired an Infection While In the Hospital, Our Houston Lawyers Can Help

We go into the hospital when we are sick and assume that we will be made well by surgery or in-hospital treatment. Unfortunately, hospitals themselves can be the source of many infections. Despite all of the precautions that the medical establishment takes to prevent disease, many patients get worse after entering the hospital and contracting a hospital-acquired infection. Our lawyers are here to help you if you have suffered from this negligence.

The Experienced Representation You Need To Go Up Against the Medical Establishment

Tommy Hastings and his team at Hastings Law Firm dedicate themselves to helping victims of medical malpractice in Houston. They have obtained millions of dollars in compensation through their many successes and have held members of the medical establishment accountable for the harm they inadvertently caused. Tommy is a board-certified personal injury lawyer with more than a decade of experience.

Our entire team gets to know you and your situation. We provide a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere where you can tell us what happened and how it has affected your life. All of this helps us think differently about your case. The more we understand about you and your circumstances, the more invested we become in winning on your behalf.

The Consequences of a Simple Mistake

Hospitals are considered to be some of the most sanitary places people go. Unfortunately, this is not always true. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that nearly 2 million Americans suffer from hospital-acquired infections every year, at a cost of nearly $45 billion in extra hospital care.

The Most Common Infections Acquired in Hospitals Include:

  • Norovirus
  • Bacterial infections
  • Influenza (flu)
  • Bloodstream infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Clostridium difficile (C-diff)
  • Surgical site infections

In many cases, doctors and nurses fail to diagnose these infections before they become a problem. Patients are sent home, where the infection festers. They are re-admitted to the hospital with a problem that could have been prevented with proper care.

Our on-staff nurse will review your situation and look for all signs of medical malpractice. Our extensive experience helps us spot these mistakes quickly and efficiently. We pursue maximum compensation from the hospital and their insurance company.

By holding the medical establishment accountable for the harm they would otherwise explain away as beyond their control, you help prevent this same harm from happening to other 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.
