Medical Malpractice in Texas

Before this new legislation was passed, people in Texas were able to be compensated when a doctor did something wrong to them. Now a days, that is not the case. Before personal injury attorneys will take any medical malpractice case, there is too many concerns that we must face.

First, is the amount of money that is going to be spent, worth the time and effort that is going to be used to obtain a fair and equitable settlement for the clients. Next, is the expert report, required by Chapter 74 of the CPRC going to overcome the challenge by the Defendants. Also, is there any insurance coverage that would decrease the recovery for the injured. These and many more are considerations to be taken by the lawyer or law firm that will handle your case.

Before proposition 12 was passed, the former 4590i statute gave some indication as to where the law was going to go. Today, the impact that has created on the community is far to grave to describe.

For instance, the paid or incurred statute rewards the irresponsible in Texas and punish the person who does what is right. To explain this concept, it would take another post, so stay tuned.

In essence, Texas has become a place where the injured are suffering more and more, and the wealthy insurance companies and doctors are benefiting at the behest of their pain and suffering. Something needs to be done pronto.

Fortunately, there are still law firms that will handle some cases. If you, or some one you know has been injured by a doctor, contact us. We care about your legal needs.
