Three Steps To Take Before Filing A Lawsuit

As a board-certified trial attorney for over 20 years, I have advised victims of medical malpractice and their loved ones on their legal options. Throughout the state of Texas, I have been retained to design 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.

Act Quickly To Protect Your Medical Claims

In helping clients who have been harmed by medical error, I know that while you recognize your health has been affected by your doctor's negligence, you don't know where to begin to seek justice for your case. Unaware of your options, you may choose a "wait-and-see" approach, hoping your problems will just resolve themselves.

They won't. Instead, you should take action to preserve evidence and support your claim by following these first steps:

1. Document the events surrounding the event. Your recollection of specific details will lessen as time passes. Should your testimony be required in trial, these notes will shape your presentation of the facts.

2. Obtain relevant medical records and bills. This paperwork will establish the type of procedure conducted and may indicate the drugs or devices used when you were under medical care.

3. Seek out legal representation and bring your documentation to the meeting. Once the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit expires, you will have no options for advancing your case. When you consult with a lawyer, you will know what course of action you should take.

Legislation passed in the state of Texas severely restricts the settlements victims of medical negligence can receive and protects area hospitals from lawsuits. If you believe that you have cause for a claim, it is better to seek counsel now than to let time pass.
