However, all Texas patients can safely assume that doctors, nurses and other staff members will adhere to the highest levels of acceptable standards and protocol to keep patients safe during surgery. A current medical malpractice issue involves various mistakes that have apparently occurred during cataracts eye surgeries.
Among the many vehicles that share Texas roadways on a daily basis are chartered buses. Groups of people often enlist the services of a hired bus and driver when traveling on day trips or taking vacations. When one of these massive vehicles wrecks, it often results in a tragic fatal accident.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reported that an SUV driver and two children were critically injured in an accident on a recent Tuesday morning. This tragic truck accident involved two dump trucks and an SUV. Although the incident is still under investigation, a preliminary report provides some details.
When a person is entrusted to the care of medical professionals, that patient may reasonably assume that all accepted protocol standards and safety measures will be followed during any treatment or procedure procured. This is not always the case, however, as made evident by the ongoing problem of medical malpractice incidents in many Texas hospitals and those in other regions. When a person seeking medical care suffers injury or illness because of a doctor or nurse's negligence, it is only right that those responsible be held legally accountable for the suffering their actions have caused.
