Grounds for Malpractice Claims
In the US more than 200,000 people die each year due to medical malpractice,
yet many cases go unnoticed or unreported. In some cases, malpractice
is not evident until it has already caused significant harm to the victim.
If you suspect that you have grounds to file a claim in Houston, you should
contact a malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.
Malpractice claims can be filed on account off the following:
- Unnecessary surgery
- Medication errors
- Other hospital errors
- Adverse effects from medications
- Incorrect prescriptions
Even with so many medical injuries caused each year, only a fraction of
those victims or their families file a lawsuit to receive compensation.
When you need to file a medical malpractice suit, The Webster Law Firm
is prepared to work on your behalf.
Laws Regarding Medical Malpractice Claims in Texas
If you are a victim of medical malpractice and are seeking to file a claim,
you should first be aware of the law regarding such lawsuits.
Texas state law enforces the following in regards to medical malpractice cases:
- $250,000 cap on non-economic damages
- Statute of limitations of two years from original injury date
- Only 120 days to provide an "expert report" against involved parties
- Expert testimony is necessary to establish a case
It is also important to note that if you are judged to be more than 50%
responsible for your injury, you will not receive any compensation. This
means that you can only receive a proportional amount if your responsibility
of 50% or less.
