Healthcare providers serve important roles in our society. They are there to offer help on the worst days of our lives, but that does not prevent them from making mistakes. Thousands of victims are injured or wrongfully killed by the negligence of healthcare providers every year in the United States. The expert Texas medical malpractice attorneys at The Miller Law Firm represent victims from medical malpractice.
According to this study by Johns Hopkins Hospital, Medical Malpractice was the third leading cause of death in the United States in 2016. They calculated that over 250,000 deaths per year are caused by medical error in our country. Professionals who hold the privilege of a medical license should be held accountable for misconduct and negligence that harms their patients.
Who May Be Held Accountable for Medical Malpractice?
- Doctors, nurses, therapists, physicians’ assistants, hospital employees and pharmacists.
- Hospitals, clinics, treatment facilities, emergency rooms and pharmacies.
- Individuals, organizations, partnerships and corporations.
Medical malpractice claims are difficult to navigate. Juries tend to side with doctors in medical malpractice claims. However, with the right evidence, an experienced medical malpractice attorney like The Texas Bulldog can greatly increase the odds in a victim’s favor.
Types of Medical Malpractice
The Texas Bulldog will help you recover compensatory damages after a medical malpractice injury or death caused by any of the following:
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical error
- Improper diagnosis
- Failure to diagnose
- Nursing malpractice
- LASIK errors
- Medical product liability

- Medication error and over-dosage

If you or a loved one has been hurt by a negligent medical provider, doctor or hospital we can help you. In Texas the statute of limitations for medical malpractice is generally two years. However, the sooner you file a suit the better it is for your case. Delays can result in the court dismissing the case.
