Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Austin

Who can file a medical malpractice claim?

Have you or someone you know suffered personal injury because of a negligent doctor or other medical professional? Anyone who is injured due to medical negligence can recover their damages by filing a medical malpractice claim. These claims can be filed against any medical professional or facility, including the following:

  • Doctors
  • Surgeons
  • Nurses
  • Dentists
  • Chiropractors
  • Pharmacists / pharmacy technicians
  • Hospitals

Medical malpractice claims can cause a doctor to be reviewed by the Texas Medical Board, which may in turn result in a revoked license to practice medicine. As a result, doctors and other professionals will be quick to deny liability and fight your claim with whatever resources they have. This is why you need an experienced and aggressive Austin personal injury attorney by your side.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Doctors can demonstrate negligence through a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose, by prescribing a harmful drug, or by failing to monitor their patient's reaction to a prescription. Surgeons can perform a surgery on the wrong site, make a wrong incision, or use contaminated instruments that cause infection. Chiropractors can cause further injury to a patient who comes to them for treatment, and dentists can cause irreversible damage to a person's teeth or mouth. As long as you have suffered some form of injury, illness, or damage because of a medical professional's negligence, you can file a claim against him or her to obtain fair compensation.
