Do you believe you are a victim of Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice or medical negligence is an area of personal injury law regarding medical injuries that result from medical errors including: acts of commission (improper medical management) and acts of omission (progression of an illness resulting from lack of care or treatment). A medical error is a preventable adverse effect from a failure in safety practices in health care than can result in life-changing and disabling injuries or death.
When a patient has a serious injury or dies as a result of negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse, surgeon, anesthesiologist or other medical professional, he or she or her family may have the right to bring a claim against that provider in order to seek financial compensation for physical and emotional injuries. Depending upon the medical error and the circumstances that led to the patient’s injuries, the patient may be able to recover monetary damages for medical care, lost wages, pain and anguish, and possibly more.

Texas’ Civil Practice & Remedies Code, Chapter 74 on Medical Liability defines a “Health Care liability claim” as “a cause of action against a health care provider or physician for treatment, lack of treatment, or other claimed departure from accepted standards of medical care, or health care, or safety or professional or administrative services directly related to health care, which approximately results in injury to or death of a claimant [patient].”
