What You Should Know about Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice Cases
Before you file a personal injury or medical malpractice lawsuit in Texas, you need to know what’s involved. This collection of articles can help tell you whether or not you have a viable case—or better understand the rules relevant to your pending lawsuit.
Filing a Hospital or Physician Negligence Claim in Texas Can Be a Tricky Business
In the state of Texas, it can be very difficult to initiate, much less to win, a lawsuit alleging hospital or physician negligence. Because of tort reform, institutions run by the state are virtually immune to malpractice claims, and in other cases your non-economic damages (e.g., pain and suffering) may be limited to $250,000. That’s why, if you have been the victim of hospital or physician negligence, you need to hire an experienced lawyer who can tell you whether you have a case, and how much that case may potentially be worth.

Court Watch reviewed the 624 cases involving consumers decided by the Texas Supreme Court between 2000 and 2010. The report, “Thumbs on the Scale: A Retrospective of the Texas Supreme Court, 2000-2010,” finds that the state’s high court for civil matters “has marched in lock-step to consistently and overwhelmingly to reward corporate defendants and the government at the expense of Texas families.”
“The Texas Supreme Court is an activist, results-oriented body that over the last 10 years has developed into a safe haven for corporate defendants at the expense of individuals, families, and small business owners,” said Alex Winslow, director of Court Watch. “The statistics speak for themselves. The court’s pro-defendant ideology can not be disputed.” Read More
Car Crashes, Work Mishaps, and Botched Medical Procedures Often Result in Neurological Damage
As well-protected as a person’s brain and spinal cord are, they are still susceptible to the trauma inflicted by various kinds of accidents: car crashes, construction mishaps, instances of medical malpractice, even slips and falls on icy sidewalks. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious neurological injury because of the recklessness or negligence of another party, you may be entitled to sue that person for financial damages. Read More
Did a Doctor’s Negligence During Delivery Harm Your Child?
Some deliveries are smoother than others—and some, unfortunately, result in a newborn who has suffered severe brain damage or some other neurological or physical injury. A botched delivery can cause severe mental impairment, paralysis, cerebral palsy, or some other condition that potentially requires decades of treatments and therapy. If you can show that a doctor or nurse was directly responsible for your child’s injury, you may have the grounds to file a medical malpractice claim. Read More
