Pursue Justice & Protect Your Quality Of Life
Hospitals and other medical treatment facilities in the United States are notoriously understaffed and critically underfunded. Compared to other developed countries, Americans spend twice as much on medical care while receiving inferior services and treatments. Unfortunately, when you’re seriously ill or injured, these medical facilities may be your only hope of survival. Depending on your individual circumstances, a single trip to the hospital can wipe out your entire savings account and send you into bankruptcy. And what about the greater price? According to a study by John Hopkins, over 250,000 Americans are killed by acts of medical negligence each year. This annual statistic doesn’t even include the millions of people who are carelessly injured by medical professionals. To put it bluntly, the hospital industry is focused on generating profit by quickly cycling through patients. This means that the doctors, surgeons, and nurses responsible for your care rarely have the time or resources to truly address and treat your medical concerns. When these medical staffers fail to properly treat patients, it frequently leads to preventable medical conditions and exacerbated symptoms. If you’ve been injured by the actions, errors, or omissions of a medical professional, you may be able to secure essential damages by filing a medical malpractice claim. At the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC, we are proud to provide comprehensive and personalized legal services to the residents of Texas. Our Plano medical malpractice lawyers can help you maximize your claim by investigating your case, consulting with medical experts, and aggressively litigating in court on your behalf.
Do I Have A Medical Malpractice Case?
You may be able to file a medical malpractice claim if the actions or inactions of your health care provider caused you significant injury and harm. A knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer can help you deliver the written notice of the claim and complete the expert report long before the lawsuit’s commencement. Your legal team needs to use this report to prove that the negligent party breached the standard of care by causing or contributing to your injuries. If your lawsuit is successful, you may be awarded economic and non-economic damages that alleviate your medical debts and safeguard your quality of life. Acts of medical malpractice include, but are not limited to:
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed diagnosis
- Incorrect diagnosis
- Failure to treat a condition
- Pharmaceutical errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia injuries
- Post-surgical infections
- Birth injuries
- Lack of informed consent
In Texas, an injured plaintiff has two years to file a medical malpractice claim and bring their case to court. However, this deadline can start upon the date of the injury or the date the injury should have reasonably been discovered. If a medical error is the side-effect or consequence of an ongoing treatment program, the two-year deadline begins on your final day of treatment. With this in mind, it’s important to discuss your case with a qualified and experienced attorney as soon as possible. Texas also observes a “statute of repose,” which states that a case – regardless of any unique circumstances – must be brought to court within ten years of the negligent act.
