As a patient, doctors and other medical professionals and the hospitals and clinics where they work and practice owe you a duty and responsibility. They have a duty and responsibility to provide you with a high level of care that a reasonably skilled and competent medical professional, with a similar background and in the same medical community, would provide under similar circumstances.
In many malpractices cases, a medical professional or facility does not act intentionally. Instead, malpractice more often occurs because a medical professional acted negligently, lacked proper skills or judgment, or did not give or receive proper supervision.

At Robins Cloud LLP, our attorneys have a proven track record of success. For nearly two decades they have been obtaining successful and significant results for our clients who have been seriously injured. In fact, in 2013, the National Law Journal recognized Robins Cloud LLP for having one of the top one hundred verdicts of the year. We were given this honor because we achieved a significant verdict for a client who was killed in a devastating accident involving a large tanker-trailer. Our attorneys fought hard and won the case by proving that the truck driver was fatigued and improperly trained and that the maintenance records for the truck were not properly kept.
Robins Cloud LLP is also nationally recognized for its groundbreaking litigation representing victims of Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer. Some of our clients in these cases have included victims who were diagnosed with Mesothelioma after they were exposed to asbestos in the workplace, while others were diagnosed with the illness after rare exposures. These clients have included a copy machine repairman, a gentleman who made pencil erasers, and a dentist who made gold dental crowns.

Recently, it’s been reported that medical errors that occur in hospitals and other health care facilities are the third-leading cause of death in the Nation, behind only heart disease and cancer. Actually, medical errors result in the deaths of approximately 251,000 patients every year, and medical errors cause numerous injuries. A report by the Institute of Medicine claims that there is an epidemic of preventable medical errors in our health care facilities, which is not hard to believe given that thousands of patients are in and out of hospitals and clinics every day.
When someone sues for “medical malpractice,” it usually means that they were injured, or their loved one died, due to the negligent or intentional actions of a medical professional or facility. In order to establish a medical professional or facility’s liability, you typically must prove that the medical professional or facility breached their duty of care owed to you and that that breach caused your injury. Many medical malpractice cases arise from the following medical errors:
In some cases, the injuries and illnesses that are caused by these mistakes can lead to more surgery and treatment, and unfortunately, in some cases, a patient may die. These examples of medical errors are not entirely representative the many different medical errors that end up causing serious physical injuries and fatalities, so just because your injury may not be on this list does not mean that you don’t have a malpractice claim. Contact our Texas Medical Malpractice Attorneys today to find out whether you might have a viable claim.
The statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice case in Texas, or the time within which you must file your lawsuit, is two years from the date of your injury. While a couple years may seem like plenty of time to decide whether you should file a case, medical malpractice lawsuits are often complex and involve a number of different defendants, so it’s important that you contact one of our experienced Texas Medical Malpractice Attorneys as soon as possible after your injury occurs.
If you’ve been hurt by the negligent or intentional acts of a medical professional or facility, be sure to seek proper or corrective medical treatment right away. While you probably no longer trust any medical professionals at that point, it’s important that you do not ignore an injury.
Grounds For Claim
If you do ignore an injury and don’t address it, you may be setting yourself up for more serious complications, and in extreme cases, the injury may be fatal. It’s obviously great if a medical professional can correct the mistake, but if they cannot, you likely have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. Setting up a consultation with an experienced Texas Medical Malpractice Attorney can help you determine whether you even have a malpractice case.

When a patient is harmed by a medical professional – doctor, nurse or other medical professional by failing to provide proper medical or health care treatment, it may result in a medical malpractice case. A communication error is one of the most common problems leading to a medical malpractice lawsuit. A communication error may occur either among the doctors involved in the patient’s care or between the doctors involved in the patient’s care, as well as the rest of the medical team involved in the patient’s medical care. A simple communication problem between medical professionals can potentially cause harm to a patient, which may lead to a malpractice lawsuit.
The third most common medical issue leading to medical malpractice lawsuits are surgical errors. Other types of medical issues include; misdiagnosis, childbirth injuries, medication or anesthesia errors. Some common childbirth injuries include; Cerebral Palsy, Erb-Duchenne, Erbs Palsy, Dejerine-Klumpke Palsy, Brachial Plexus, brain damage, fractures or even fetal death. Additionally, other medical issues include; failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis and failure to treat cancer, failure to diagnose and treat, delay in diagnosis, misdiagnosis as well as failure to respond to lab results related to cardiac, stroke and brain aneurysms. New cases are continuously on the rise, such as patients diagnosed with Mesothelioma, a recent medical malpractice case from patients who were exposed to asbestos.
In comparison to other legal cases, medical malpractice cases tend to be more time-consuming and costly to pursue. Because of this, medical malpractice lawyers are likely to pursue a case when the potential settlement to be awarded outweighs the litigation costs. A guilty verdict is when your doctor or medical professional admits to or is found guilty of malpractice, then a settlement will be awarded. If your case loses in court, more than likely you will not have to pay your malpractice attorney. There may be some cases where there may be an option to appeal.
