Do I Have A Medical Malpractice Claim?
A medical malpractice case must involve a significant, substantial, and verifiable deviation by a healthcare professional from the reasonably expected “standard of care,” resulting in injury to the patient. In other words, your medical care provider must not have fulfilled his or her proper duties as a professional in his or her position. Contact a San Antonio medical malpractice lawyer who can help you determine if your case is entitled to compensation. Valid medical malpractice claims do not arise from mere medical mistakes or no-fault accidents. You must be able to prove that the mistake caused you harm.
Will The Law Offices Of Maloney & Campolo Take My Malpractice Case?
Our firm, the Law Offices of Maloney & Campolo, is very selective in the types of cases we accept. Medical malpractice cases are hard to win in Texas due to state laws. Because of this, we only accept cases that are meritorious and that we believe we can win-usually less than five medical malpractice cases annually. This is beneficial for our clients, because it means that they can trust our San Antonio personal injury attorneys to dedicate full efforts and attention to their case.
Examples of medical malpractice claims include injuries caused by:
- Anesthesia errors
- Medication errors such as over-medication or under-medication, failure to account for side effects caused by combinations with other prescriptions, or any preexisting allergies.
- Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of conditions such as stroke, cancer, or diabetes.
- Surgical errors, such as amputation of an incorrect body part
- Birth errors including failure to perform a timely Caesarean section or injuries caused by use of forceps.
