Medical Malpractice

Healthcare providers such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and medical technicians all perform services that help us live healthier lives. They are skillfully trained to conduct medical services in a professional and competent manner. However, there are a handful of practitioners who slip through the cracks and end up causing more harm than help. These healthcare providers come few and far between, but when they do come, they can cause patients and their families a great deal of trauma. Fortunately, there is something you can do about it. You have the right to bring a claim against the negligent or incompetent party.

Texas Medical Malpractice Laws 

Medical malpractice laws vary from state to state. In Texas, in order to file a medical malpractice claim, the harm to the patient must be considered negligence. In addition, a patient who has been injured during the course of treatment is required to file suit within two years after the incident occurred or two years after the completion of treatment or hospitalization. Due to these time constraints, it’s important to start your lawsuit as soon as possible. In addition to time constraints there are also caps to the amount of damages you can receive. When filing a suit against a doctor or a hospital, the most you can try to attempt to claim for non-economic damages is $250,000.
