Attorneys Handling Medically Negligent Nursing Injury Lawsuits
Attorneys Holding Hospitals Accountable For Nursing Errors
Nurses are the first line of defense in a hospital. When one of them makes a mistake, your life may be at risk. Despite all of the record keeping and fancy equipment to prevent mistakes, nursing errors occur frequently and can result in your condition getting worse, or death. If you or a loved one has been harmed by nursing errors while in the hospital, talk to our lawyers about your options.

He has obtained millions of dollars for clients all over Texas who have been severely injured by medical errors. His extensive knowledge of the insurance industry and the court system gives him the ability to resolve his clients’ cases efficiently and effectively.
Everyone in our office gets to know you and your situation. We encourage this because it gives all of us a vested interest in the outcome of your case. It helps us think differently about how to approach things and puts us in a winning mindset.
Overworked and Not Paying Attention
Many hospitals are short-staffed, and nurses have many distractions as they care for patients. These circumstances can cause mistakes and threaten your health. Our attorneys have experience dealing with all types of nursing errors.
The Most Common Types of Nursing Malpractice Include:
- Failure to monitor the patient
- Shift change errors
- Failure to communicate with patients and physicians
- Failure to respond to call lights
- Failure to assist the patient to the restroom
- Failure to carry out the doctor’s orders
- Medication errors
- Dropping patients
- Failure to notice a change in the patient’s vital signs
- Failure to read charts properly
Knowing what does and does not constitute a nursing error is very important when reviewing any possible case. Medical malpractice is our focus, and we have in-depth understanding of how the medical establishment covers up its failures and how it protects itself from liability.
