Medical Malpractice Lawyers
We entrust our health and well-being to qualified health care professionals and expect that they will exercise the proper care and follow established procedures to protect us from further harm. So whether your emergency room doctor failed to properly diagnose a dangerous condition, a surgical error occurred during your treatment, a drug prescribed to you turned out to be dangerous or an OB-GYN failed to follow standard precautions resulting in a birth defect, the Texas medical malpractice lawyers at Frenkel & Frenkel want to help.
Not every bad health outcome or worsening of symptoms is a healthcare professional’s fault. Even if a doctor potentially did make a mistake, the results may not be severe enough to warrant the expense of a medical malpractice investigation. There are essentially, three critical elements that need to be met in order to have a case worth investigating:
- Breach of Duty – The standard of care on the part of the healthcare professional administering the work must fall below the legal expectation.
- Injury – As a result of the poor standard of care, the patient has suffered from some sort of injury.
- Damages – The patient has had resulting physical, emotional, or financial impact from the injury.
Providers Potentially Liable For Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice can be attributed to any provider who could potentially injure or kill a patient. Healthcare providers that fall into this category could be, but are not limited to:
- Nurse Practitioners
- Nursing Assistants
- Surgical Centers
- Lab Technicians
