Houston Surgical Error Attorneys
Top Rated Surgical Malpractice Lawyers in Houston, TX
Were You or a Loved One the Victim of a Surgical Error in Houston?
You do not make the choice to undergo surgery lightly. There are always dangerous complications that can arise. However, if your surgical professionals waiver in their duty of care to you, they can put you at even more risk of serious injury or even death.
Sadly, negligent errors are often concealed by doctors, hospitals and the general medical community. High walls of defense are thrown up to help medical professionals avoid liability. An experienced lawyer who has handled negligent cases can assist you with your potential lawsuit. Hastings Law Firm specializes in this complex area of law.
Can You Sue a Houston Surgeon for a Surgical Error?
You can sue a surgeon for surgery errors in Houston, but there are certain requirements and restrictions that you need to be aware of.
Texas has a two-year statute of limitations, which generally begins from the date of the surgery or incident. If the injury is not immediately noticeable (as it might not be if a surgical implement was left inside, for example), the statute of limitations might begin at a later date. However, this is entirely up to the discretion of the court.
In addition, as mentioned above, not all complications rise to the level of surgical error or medical malpractice. When in doubt, consult an experienced surgery malpractice attorney.
