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.

Your Ally When You’ve Been Harmed By The Hospital

Tommy Hastings of Hastings Law Firm has more than a decade of experience recognizing nursing errors in hospital settings and successfully pursuing compensation for those who have been harmed. 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.

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.
