Abilene & San Angelo Medical Malpractice Attorney
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is defined as the failure of a health care provider (a doctor, nurse, or hospital technician) to render care in keeping with good and accepted medical techniques or principles.
This matter requires an experienced medical malpractice attorney who knows the Texas laws regarding the negligence of a physician, registered nurse, dentist, podiatrist, pharmacist, hospital, or nursing home. Please contact our Abilene & San Angelo medical malpractice lawyer today if you or a loved one has been the victim of medical negligence.

Proving Medical Malpractice
Unlike other types of personal injury cases, the facts necessary to prove your case are based on the medical records and testimony of medical experts. Your Abilene and San Angelo medical malpractice attorney must understand the facts of medicine and the law to effectively prepare expert medical witnesses whose testimony is necessary for any successful medical malpractice or negligence case.
Ultimately, your attorney must explain the medical and legal issues to the jury and judge to recover the best settlement or verdict. If you want to receive the largest settlement possible, you must have experienced medical malpractice lawyers in Texas handle your medical practice case.
More people are dying every year from medical malpractice than from motor vehicle accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS – three causes that receive far more public attention. There are more people that are dying annually from medication errors alone than even workplace injuries. And, although errors may be more easily detected in hospitals, the problems extend to every health care setting, including day-surgery and outpatient clinics, retail pharmacies, nursing homes, and home care.
