Texas Hospital Error Attorney

Medical Errors at Hospitals

No one goes to a hospital with the expectation that they will come out worse than when they went in. We see hospitals as places of healing, of recovery, and we place our full trust in hospital staff, administrators, and physicians. However, the fact of the matter is that hundreds of thousands of people die every year from preventable hospital errors, and many more suffer injuries at the hands of the very people who should be making them better. Improvements in the healthcare system are slowly being made, but to this day, the rate of hospital error incidents remains significant.

If a hospital error resulted in a catastrophic injury or death, contact a Texas medical malpractice attorney immediately.

If you have suffered an injury or lost a loved one due to the negligent actions of a hospital and its staff, you have the legal right to pursue a claim in a hospital error lawsuit. It is highly advised that you seek the assistance of the Texas medical malpractice legal team at Williams & Brown LLP. Generally speaking, hospitals are not philanthropic institutions; they are lucrative businesses with profit motive. Chances are your claim will be aggressively challenged. That is why you should call us today at (888) 741-6200 or (254) 741-6200 and let us provide you with quality legal representation.

What are the Common Types of Hospital Errors?

Hospital errors can occur at any procedural or administrative level of a hospital’s system of operations. Mistakes that adversely affect a patient can be made by any individual working in the system, from a nurse all the way up to an administrator. The major types of hospital errors include the following:

  • Surgery: All hospital staff members are expected to follow certain procedures before, during, and after a surgery. Any missteps can result in serious injuries or even death.
  • Medication: Every patient with a prescription should should receive the right medication with the right dosage. Even the most seemingly insignificant mistake in this area can cause irreparable harm.
  • Anesthesia: A patient who undergoes this procedure should be closely monitored by hospital staff. Physicians should be able to respond quickly and efficiently if something goes wrong.
  • Infections: A hospital should generally be clean. Medical tools and areas where sensitive medical procedures are carried out should be sterile. Otherwise, serious infections may result.

How Do Tort Reform Laws in Texas Impact My Claim?

Unfortunately, Texas is one of 31 states with tort reform laws that enforce caps on non-economic damages, like physical pain and suffering from a preventable injury, emotional and mental problems and scarring and disfigurement of the patient’s body. The amount that the jury can allow for a patient’s physical pain, emotional damage, and disfigurement is capped at an arbitrary amount not matter how severe it is. However, there remains no limit on the amount of economic damages that the jury may allow for the patient.

Why Choose Us?

Because not all attorneys and law firms are created equal.

Laws that apply to different kinds of injury cases are complex. An attorney or law firm that occasionally handles injury cases may not have the expertise or track record that is necessary to maximize the value of your case.
