Holding Negligent Medical Professionals Accountable
Everyone makes mistakes, but certain mistakes can have a massive impact on someone’s life. If a doctor or another medical professional errs in your treatment and an injury that could have been prevented occurs, you can seek rightful compensation with a medical malpractice claim.
The Daws Law Firm in Beaumont, Texas, strives to help those who have been injured by medical professionals they trusted to care for them. When that trust is violated and injury occurs, we have the knowledge and experience to help.
Texas Medical Malpractice Law Can Make For Tough Cases
Medical malpractice cases are tougher in Texas than in other states thanks in part to a law passed in 2003 that limits noneconomic damages that can be recovered. Many lawyers in Texas no longer take on medical malpractice cases because of this law and the hurdles that must be overcome to have a successful case, but we are prepared to fight for you.
Our firm has taken and successfully prevailed on a variety of medical malpractice cases, including:
- Failure to diagnose and treat heart attack
- Substandard emergency room (ER) treatment
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Medication errors
- Patient neglect
- Botched eye surgery
How Long Do I Have To File A Malpractice Claim?
One very important part of Texas medical malpractice is the statute of limitations, or the timeframe in which you must file a claim in order to recover. Texas law is very strict about this and provides that you have two years from the date of the negligent act to file your medical malpractice claim. If you think you may have a case, you should not wait until the last minute to consult with a medical malpractice attorney as these cases take time to review because of necessary records retrieval and expert review.
