Dallas Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice is the failure of a health provider to meet accepted standards of medical care and safety, resulting in serious injury or death to a patient. While most doctors and other health professionals perform their jobs with the utmost caution, they face critical decision-making every single day. Unfortunately, when a doctor or other medical staff member makes a mistake due to poor judgment, a failure to follow procedures or a failure to communicate, the consequences can be tragic.
Some of the most common instances of medical malpractice include:
- Missed diagnosis
- Delayed diagnosis
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical injuries
- Labor and delivery-related injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Medication errors
- Improperly prescribed or dispensed medication dosages
The results of medical malpractice can range from a temporary condition to organ damage, brain injury and even death. When injuries of such severity are caused by malpractice, victims and their families have the right to seek compensation to pay for the additional medical care needed to treat the injury, as well as other emotional and financial costs.
Most medical professionals carry high insurance policies to protect against medical malpractice. When a victim files a claim, representatives from those insurance companies act quickly to try and minimize damages. In addition, the legal counsel for hospitals and other medical organizations know how to leverage malpractice laws in their favor – and not in the best interest of the victim. If you’ve suffered from medical malpractice, an experienced lawyer representing your interests is crucial to the success of your claim.
Medical malpractice often results in long-term physical damage and expensive treatment. Entire families can suffer because of the mistake of a health care professional – the very person in whom the victim placed trust. Malpractice victims shouldn’t have to take on insurance companies and hospitals on their own; attorneys with experience handling Texas medical malpractice cases can help.
