Victims of medical malpractice often suffer long-term injuries that may significantly impact their quality of life. Many patients are unaware that they have the right to pursue compensation for damages, such as pain and suffering, loss of income, medical bills and other damages. If you have been injured, misdiagnosed or believe that medical negligence caused your condition, our medical malpractice lawyers at Leinart Law Firm can help you understand your rights and options.
Our medical malpractice attorneys have decades of experience handling cases involving negligence that led to unnecessary injury or the loss of a loved one. We work closely with trusted physicians, investigators and other professionals who help us evaluate your case and determine whether you have a viable claim that is worth pursuing. We have helped thousands of clients recover maximum compensation in cases involving:
- Birth injuries
- Brain injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Obstetric & gynecological malpractice
- Medication errors
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose
- Failure to treat
- Plastic surgery errors
- Surgical errors
Although most medical malpractice cases involve mistakes and errors in judgment by physicians and other medical professionals, malpractice claims may involve hospital administrators and insurance companies as well. If either excessive red tape or insurance issues resulted in delayed or interrupted treatment that lead to harm, an injured victim may be entitled to compensation in these cases as well.
At Leinart Law Firm, our medical malpractice attorneys have a proven track record of success when it comes to recovering damages for medical bills, missed time from work, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement and other losses due to negligence or malpractice.
Regardless of the circumstances, medical malpractice cases are rarely cut and dry—these claims are complex and multifaceted. They require the knowledge of seasoned professionals who understand how the long-term implications of how a medical mistake may impact your life. Without legal experience or a medical background, it’s virtually impossible to determine the scope of your future losses.
Our team painstakingly investigates the circumstances surrounding your injury to find out what caused it and whether multiple parties were responsible. We understand how to accurately value your claim and pursue all possible avenues of compensation to help you get the full amount of compensation you deserve and need in order to protect your health and your family’s financial security.
Medical malpractice occurs when a health care professional, hospital or other entity causes injury due to negligence, failure to act or failure to treat a patient according to reasonable standards of practice in the medical community or specialty.
To prove medical malpractice, the injured patient must demonstrate that:
Yes. Proving the four elements of medical malpractice is challenging. In any personal injury claim, the burden of proof rests on the plaintiff. Demonstrating that a health care professional did not act in a reasonable or generally accepted way (e.g. the way another medical professional would in the same situation) can be difficult. Proving that their negligence caused an injury that resulted in damages is also challenging. Our legal team has many years of experience building solid medical malpractice cases, proving negligence and recovering substantial compensation for our clients.
Before you can even file a medical malpractice claim in Texas, you must provide notice of the claim to each health care provider who is to be named in the lawsuit. This notice of claim must be sent, in writing, at least 60 days before the case is filed. When your attorney files a medical malpractice lawsuit with the court, they must include an expert report or affidavit of merit, which summarizes:
Failure to submit this report within 120 days of the filing of the complaint may result in dismissal of your case. It must also be sent to the defendants in a timely manner. In most cases, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim in Texas is two years, so it is essential to speak to an attorney as soon as you discover your injury to ensure all deadlines met and all procedures for filing a lawsuit are met.
The best way to find out if you have a case for medical malpractice is to schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys at Leinart Law Firm. Even if you’re unsure of whether your injury is serious enough to warrant a lawsuit, it is worth contacting us. Our lawyers always provide straightforward, free case evaluations so you have nothing to lose.
When it comes to litigating medical malpractice claims, health care providers and their insurance companies have vast resources. The attorneys, insurance adjusters and medical professionals employed by these insurers work to minimize or deny claims as often as possible. No two claims are alike. Without an experienced medical malpractice lawyer by your side, it is unlikely that you will recover a sizeable or even adequate award for your injuries and losses. Hiring a medical malpractice attorney who understands Texas law and the elements involved in proving these types of cases can make the difference between obtaining a significant settlement and receiving no compensation at all.
Although there are thousands of medical malpractice lawyers in Texas, it is vital to find someone you trust, and one with whom you feel comfortable sharing intimate details of your life.
