Texans aren’t known for giving up control easily. It’s in our DNA to make our own way through life by depending upon as few others as possible. So when we have to give up control, you know it’s for a good reason, such as being put under for surgery. You’re essentially turning over control of your life to the surgeon and his/her staff. From that moment on, it’s in their hands whether or not you wake up again. When that trust is broken in the operating room, the results can be devastating.
No doctor is perfect, which is why so many medical professionals and hospitals in Texas carry medical malpractice insurance. It’s just the smart thing to do for their practice and their patients. If a medical mistake leads to significant health complications for one of their patients, they have the safety net of medical malpractice insurance to help compensate that patient for their injuries.
If you’ve been the victim of medical malpractice, it should reassure you to know that the medical professional who injured you may have insurance for such an occasion. But the only way to access that medical malpractice insurance is to file a claim. An Texas medical malpractice attorney can help you determine your options and file a claim to secure compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
