Welcoming a baby into the world is typically an exciting and joyful experience for parents in Texas and throughout the United States. Sadly, however, medical negligence plagues many hospitals and birthing centers, placing moms at risk for labor and delivery mishaps that place their infants at risk for birth injury. Many birth injuries result in partial or full permanent disability, leaving parents unprepared to meet the exorbitant expenses often associated with the care necessary to help their children.
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.
Many Texas residents who struggle with depression take antidepressant medications. Of course, prescription medication can be quite expensive. Sometimes, a patient is able to use a generic form of a particular drug to keep costs down.

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.
