Medical Malpractice in Texas

The appropriate standard of care varies depending on the age of the patient, their health condition or illness, and the generally accepted methods of diagnosis and treatment that are used by doctors, hospitals, and healthcare providers in the area to treat patients with similar illnesses, injuries, or health conditions.

The first step in any medical malpractice case is to establish that the provider failed to treat the client with a reasonable standard of care. This can be a challenging and technical matter.

Types of Medical Malpractice


One of the most common forms of medical malpractice involves wrongly diagnosing the patient at the beginning of the treatment process. This can have potentially serious consequences, as an unnecessary treatment can potentially do much more harm than good.

Delayed Diagnosis

To qualify as malpractice, the diagnosis must be delayed to an unreasonable extent and in a way that can be shown to have made the original condition worse. Delayed diagnosis can apply even if the correct diagnosis is eventually made.

Failure to Treat

This happens when a doctor correctly diagnoses the patient’s condition but then fails to actually recommend an adequate course of action. This can happen if a doctor is simply being careless, but can also result from doctors who are fatigued and overworked.

Surgical Error

The release forms signed before surgery don’t cover neglect, and you’re entitled to damages if a surgical mistake has caused you to suffer painful consequences. These errors can include unnecessary surgery, tissue damage, improper anesthesia, and more.

Compensation & Time Limits for Malpractice Claims

In Texas, the statute of limitations is two years for filing a lawsuit for medical malpractice. Acting fast and involving an attorney is important, not only due to this statute of limitations but because medical records may go missing, important details may be forgotten, and key evidence could be diminished or lost over time.

The longer you wait, the more difficult it can be to prove malpractice. There are limits in Texas for non-economic damages for medical malpractice cases. Our attorney can explain the law, as it pertains to your unique circumstances.
