You would be hard-pressed to name a more anxiety rich environment than a surgery waiting room. With all that can go wrong with even a simple procedure, families can't help but worry as they wait to hear how their loved one fared on the operating table. That worry is amplified when the doctor finally comes in to give the word. Unfortunately for many Texas families, that word isn’t always good.
Medical malpractice is more than a negligent act that causes injury; it’s a devastating blow to the victims, their families, and the communities they belong to. Over the years, we’ve spoken with victims who were hesitant to bring a medical malpractice suit against their medical providers for fear of ruining someone’s career. That fear, although admirable, is misplaced. Most physicians and hospitals carry medical malpractice insurance because they know that at some point, they may need to compensate a patient for an injury. No one is perfect, even in the medical profession. Medical malpractice insurance exists to protect the doctors and the patients, and the benefits of that insurance is what we seek in a medical malpractice case.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical malpractice, we suggest you consult an experienced Texas medical malpractice attorney immediately. You deserve to be compensated, and an experienced attorney will work to make sure you are.
