Medical Malpractice Archives

Medical malpractice claim vs psychiatrist is based on negligence

Psychiatric malpractice in Texas is treated generally the same as any other claim for medical negligence. If the psychiatrist rendered sub-standard, careless treatment to the patient and injured the patient as a result of that treatment, the doctor would be liable for medical malpractice damages to the patient. Many claims against psychiatrists attempt to collect for the suicidal death of the decedent while he/she was under the care of the psychiatrist.

Substantial sum given to family in medical malpractice situation

In 2007, a man visited his doctor seeking diagnosis and treatment for severe neck pain. The doctor prescribed various injections and other treatments to alleviate the man's symptoms. The situation that unfolded following those doctor visits left the man's family distraught and blaming the doctor for medical malpractice. Some Texas families may currently be facing similar situations.

Medical malpractice claim filed against hospital

Many medical patients in Texas will undergo surgeries this year. Some surgical procedures are elective, meaning not medically  necessary but desired by the patient for some purpose. Other situations are more urgent, and surgery is determined necessary to save a life or at least improve a declined medical condition. A woman in another state underwent surgery that many doctors have since claimed isn't usually necessary; the situation led to a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice may have caused man's severe health decline

Texas patients preparing for surgery may want to pay close attention to a situation that occurred in another state. A man underwent an operation. During recovery, he was not feeling well; in fact, he lost more than 40 pounds and said he felt like he was dying. What happened next came as a shock to many, and some say they expect a medical malpractice lawsuit to follow.

Half million med mal deaths per year include many in Texas

Many Texas readers may be alarmed to learn that approximately 500,000 people suffer fatal injuries associated with medical errors every year throughout the nation. In fact, some estimates claim doctors and medical professionals make mistakes in providing care and treatment to patients as much as 15 percent of the time. Injuries suffered in med mal situations are often quite severe.

Best to clarify medical malpractice law before going to court

Many Texas medical patients will undergo surgery this year. While there is obviously risk involved with any medical procedure, patients entrust themselves to physicians believing all accepted safety standards will be followed. Sadly, substandard care remains problematic in many regions, and many people suffer serious injuries (as well as death) when things go terribly wrong. In such circumstances, medical malpractice laws often become a focus when questions regarding filing claims arise.

Parents of newborn sue for medical malpractice regarding error

Many women will give birth in Texas hospitals this year. For most, the experience will be joyful and exciting as they welcome their infants into their families and prepare to take them home. Others' experiences, however, will not be so wonderful, as it's likely some Texas hospital patients will be among those who suffer injury due to medical malpractice.

Medical malpractice suspected as cause of child's death

Any Texas parent who has ever visited an emergency room with a child suffering from unexplained illness will likely relate to the worry a mother in another state felt when a similar incident occurred involving her 2-year-old son. Sadly, that situation resulted in tragedy. The mother and her husband have since filed a medical malpractice lawsuit claiming doctors failed to issue an accurate diagnosis in a timely manner.

Woman files medical malpractice claim after suffering injury

Hundreds of thousands of medical patients seek treatment and care in Texas hospitals and others throughout the nation each year. When the treatment provided falls short of accepted medical care standards, the results are often disastrous. One such incident occurred in another state that has led to a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice suspected in hospital outside Texas

A woman who had been employed as a registered nurse learned she had developed a condition in her own pregnancy that required a C-section at 30 weeks gestation in 2015. The events that unfolded in a facility outside Texas turned into a tragedy that has devastated the woman and her husband. Their precious infant has suffered permanent disability they believe was caused by medical malpractice.
