Texas Medical Malpractice Law Firm Wins Cases for Injured Clients
Dallas attorney has been helping victims recover compensation for 35 years
A special relationship exists between physicians and their patients. Physicians owe their patients a duty to provide a certain standard of care, using at least the level of skill, care and diligence that is generally exercised by fellow practitioners in the medical professions. It is considered medical malpractice when a medical professional breaches that duty through negligence or carelessness and causes injury to a patient. Medical malpractice victims may recover compensation for their injuries, including for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost income.
