Attorneys Pursuing Negligence Cases For Over-Prescribing Of Medications

People who have surgery or who have chronic pain frequently consult with their doctors about pain management. Doctors who are trying to establish their practices may tend toward over-prescribing medications in order to build their businesses. Unfortunately, this frequently leads to the patients becoming addicted and continuing to schedule appointments to get more prescriptions. The more addicted they become, the greater the risk of more serious complications, including overdose and death.

This predatory use of patient pain, whether deliberate or not, is a serious problem. If you or a loved one has suffered harm from over-prescribing of medications, talk to a lawyer about your options.

Stopping Doctors from Taking Advantage of Your Pain

Tommy Hastings of Hastings Law Firm is well-known throughout Texas for his work on shutting down “pill mills” or pain management clinics that exist only to prescribe pain medications. He continues this work for people who have been harmed by clinics and hospitals through over-prescription of pain medications. Tommy and his team have obtained millions of dollars for their clients and have held many in the medical establishment accountable for their actions.

Our entire staff gets to know you and your circumstances. We find that this relaxed, friendly attitude helps us to think differently about you and your case. When everyone knows your story and the result, it makes us fight harder for your cause.

Administration of Medications Must be Monitored

Every medication has potential side effects. Pain medications tend to have side effects with much more severe consequences such as heart failure or liver damage. Many medications can be addictive and can cause harm.

Some of the Most Commonly Over-Prescribed Medications Include:

  • Demerol
  • Opioids
  • Vicodin
  • Lortab
  • Lorcet
  • Xanax
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Muscle relaxants
  • Psychiatric medications
  • Klonopin

Our attorney’s extensive experience with medical malpractice helps him spot the patterns of over-prescription. We will fight for compensation for the harm done to you or to a family member.

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.
