Hopes for relief from pain can quickly turn into disasters when medical mistakes make matters worse. When you seek treatment, you expect to find a well-trained and highly educated professional who can help you. The medical field attracts many who have the qualities that you need, but it also accepts some who are not as well equipped. Medical negligence can occur when the quality of care falls below the expected standard of care.

Statistics show that preventable medical mistakes are a common cause of death in the United States, ranking third behind heart disease and cancer. Entering a hospital under a doctor’s care with faith and confidence typically contributes to a successful recovery from medical conditions. However, when errors occur, they can have serious consequences.

At The Monk Law Firm, our lawyers think it is unfair for you to suffer from the mistakes of others. We put our years of experience in personal injury law into representing you aggressively. Attorneys at the Monk Law Firm know how to investigate your case to provide the foundation for securing the justice and compensation that you deserve.

Experiencing the Legal Process

Suffering an injury from medical errors or negligence may prevent you from realizing that you have a potential medical malpractice claim. Most hospitals, doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals provide reliable and compassionate care, but unfortunate accidents can lead to devastating outcomes.

The area of law that addresses negligence and malpractice issues is one of the most complicated in the legal system. Involving both medicine and law, it requires extensive knowledge and experience for effective prosecution. Not every unfortunate outcome is a result of medical malpractice, but a qualified Medical Malpractice Attorney can give you a sense of the strength of your case.

Reviewing the Facts at a Medical Malpractice Law Firm

In Texas, each case must receive an expert examination of the facts and the medical records to determine the adequacy and quality of care. Even someone you trust can make a mistake, and you or your loved one may suffer from it.

The review must also examine each case for a causal link between an injury and potentially negligent care. Establishing the relationship in a medical negligence case beyond the preponderance of the evidence is an essential aspect of your case. It is vital to consult the attorneys at the Monk Law Firm as soon as possible after you suffer an injury.

The experience of a successful Medical Malpractice Attorney can make a crucial difference in the outcome of your claim.
