What Is Medical Malpractice, and Who Is Responsible?

It’s important to understand that not every injury suffered while receiving medical care is malpractice. Sometimes, unforeseeable circumstances mean you suffer an injury or some other negative impact from a doctor, nurse, or another medical professional who did nothing wrong.

That’s why malpractice cases can be seen as difficult to litigate. They are not impossible, however, and an experienced malpractice lawyer from our firm can review your case for free to decide whether pursuing litigation makes sense in your circumstances.

In Texas, the legal definition of medical malpractice refers to actions or omissions by medical professions that negligently violate the standard of care; cause injuries to patients, and; lead to significant damages.

Doctors and nurses aren’t the only ones who can be held responsible for malpractice. Other examples include:

  • Hospitals
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Midwives
  • Nurse assistants
  • Lab technicians
  • Psychologists
  • Surgeons
  • Physical therapists
  • And others

Examples of Medical Malpractice

In theory, medical malpractice can occur as the result of any negligent act or omission that breaks the standard of care that a patient should expect to receive.

This means that there exists a wide variety of examples of potential medical malpractice. Some possibilities include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Misreading of results
  • Early discharge
  • Surgical errors
  • Medicine errors, such as prescribing a low or incorrect dose
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Many others

Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims in Texas

The statute of limitations on medical malpractice in the state of Texas is two years.

It’s important to keep in mind that one of our attorneys will need a minimum of a few months to properly prepare your claim for filing, which is why most medical malpractice victims in Dallas opt to speak to an attorney from our firm as soon as they become aware of their injuries or losses.
