Common Forms Of Medical Malpractice

When people hear the phrase "medical malpractice," they may immediately envision surgical errors that result in a patient's undergoing a procedure on the wrong body part. While mistakes like this do happen, complications arising from other forms of negligence are more common.

For over three decades, I have served as an attorney to help victims suffering from a range of complications caused by medical malpractice. Like you, my clients were not familiar with their legal options, but they recognized the obstacles they faced in presenting their negligence claims in Texas courts.

From my firm in Lubbock, I develop legal strategies to hold those responsible to account. I have obtained large settlements on behalf of my clients for complex cases spanning birth complications to paralysis caused by surgical error. My rate of success in state and federal courts is one reason that The National Trial Lawyers listed me as a Texas Top 100 Trial Lawyer. I also have secured favorable outcomes for my clients in out-of-court settlements.

Not All Medical Negligence Is Easy To See

While there are many types of mistakes that occur in hospitals throughout the state, these errors are the most common:

  1. Providing the wrong diagnosis or failing to diagnose a condition that a trained physician would have recognized given the patient's symptoms
  2. Delaying treatment or failing to treat a medical condition with the appropriate medication or procedure
  3. Providing the wrong treatment or erring in prescribing the appropriate medication or dosage
  4. Committing surgical errors that result in life-altering injuries, such as brain or spinal cord injuries

Given their intensive training, medical professionals and hospital staff are required to provide a standard of care to their patients. When that standard of care is not met, you, as the patient, suffer.
