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.
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.
Babies are born in Texas hospitals (and others throughout the nation) every day without incident. However, there are also many recorded occurrences where what was supposed to be joyful occasions became tragedies when families' lives were turned upside down because of birth injury or infant fatality. Such horrific events are often caused by medical negligence.
One can only imagine how difficult it is to watch a parent suffer mental decline due to dementia. Often, adult children in Texas must entrust the care of a parent to nursing home staff or other assisted-living facilities. An incident that occurred in 2014 in another state will now be scrutinized in court as a woman has blamed her mother's death on medical malpractice from resulted nursing negligence.
One can only imagine the joy of bringing a loved one home from a hospital stay, only to suffer his or her loss a short time later. The devastation and grief associated with such a tragedy could be intensified upon learning that the family member's death may have been prevented. A widow in Texas has filed a wrongful death lawsuit following the sudden and unexpected loss of her husband.
