Unnoticed Internal Bleeding Leads To Hospital Malpractice Lawsuit

injury case examples

On behalf of Hastings Law Firm posted in Texas Hospital Negligence Law Firm on Monday, June 20, 2016.

When Texas residents have loved ones admitted to medical facilities, they have the right to expect those people to receive care of an acceptable standard. Failure by facilities or their medical personnel to provide proper care may lead to hospital malpractice lawsuits, and people involved in these cases will need a lawyer focusing on medical errors in Houston to receive proper legal support. A medical center and several affiliates are facing such a lawsuit in another state.

According to the court documents, the administrator of the estate of a deceased woman alleges negligent post-operative care led to her untimely death. The plaintiff asserts that the woman was admitted to the facility in July 2014 for a cardiac procedure of catheterization. However, complications arose that caused internal bleeding. It is alleged that it caused a rapid deterioration in her general condition.

The patient died within five days of her admittance to the facility. Further allegations say the defendants failed to do a proper evaluation of the patient’s health following the surgical procedure. For this reason, the plaintiff contends, the internal bleeding went unnoticed and untreated, leading to the patient’s death.

Along with court costs, over $50,000 is sought in the recovery of damages sustained. When a Texas family believes that the death of a loved one was caused by negligent care at a medical facility, a consultation with an experienced Houston law firm specializing in medical errors may be advisable. A lawyer can assess and investigate the allegations to determine the viability of a hospital malpractice lawsuit. If it is decided to go ahead and file a claim in a civil court, an attorney can navigate it on behalf of the family.

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.

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.

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.
