A surgeon in a different state has been blamed for a woman's botched operation. In fact, the woman is suing the surgeon for around $4 million due to his alleged medical malpractice. In the same way, a person in Texas who suffers harm at the hand of a negligent surgeon may seek to hold that surgeon accountable in civil court.
A man in another state recently claimed that a surgeon had left a wire inside of him 15 years ago. He has thus filed a lawsuit against the surgeon, who is now on trial. Any patient in Texas who is harmed due to a doctor's error has the right to seek compensation through a medical malpractice claim.
