What You Can Be Compensated For in a Texas Medical Malpractice Case

When medical malpractice turns your life upside down, knowing what kind of compensation you can seek is fundamental in starting your journey toward justice and recovery. In Texas, the law recognizes the right of malpractice victims to be compensated for a variety of damages that can arise from substandard medical care. This compensation is designed to address medical errors' financial and personal costs.

Types of compensation you may be entitled to include:

  • Economic damages: Such as past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and lost earning capacity.
  • Non-economic damages: This can cover pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Punitive damages: In rare cases where the conduct is deemed willful or grossly negligent, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar conduct in the future.

The aftermath of a medical mistake is overwhelming, and the need for justice is urgent. That's why we commit to fighting aggressively for your right to total and fair compensation. However, there is a critical timeframe for taking legal action due to the statute of limitations in Texas. Generally, you must file a medical malpractice lawsuit within two years from the date of the harm or the end of the course of treatment or hospital stay.

Medical malpractice cases can be complicated and need quick action to gather important evidence and expert testimonies. Waiting too long can harm your case and make seeking the compensation you deserve difficult.

  • Diagnostic errors: Improper or delayed diagnosis can cause a cascade of issues, ranging from incorrect treatment plans to missed treatment opportunities, often with grave implications.
  • Systemic issues: Problems inherent in the healthcare system, including administrative pressures and cost-cutting measures, can result in substandard care delivery.
