Every doctor will make a mistake at least once…

Medical malpractice is the occurrence of negligent or reckless behavior by your doctor, surgeon, or another medical professional, in which their actions directly caused you to sustain an injury. Medical malpractice can take many forms, and, in some instances, it can lead into a wrongful death case. 


The majority of medical malpractice claims tend to be filed after at least one of these events:

How to qualify for a medical malpractice lawsuit

In order to file and win a medical malpractice claim, you and your attorney will have to prove a few key facts about your case to the court:

An Existing Relationship

There was an existing relationship between patient and physician. You can’t file a claim against a doctor who hasn’t personally worked with you.

An Act of Negligence

Your physician and the facility you received treatment from acted with negligence. Doctors owe their patients what is legally called a “standard of care.” A doctor who fails to meet the “standard of care” established by what a “reasonable” medical professional would do would be found negligent.

A Cause of Injury

The negligent actions (or the lack of action) taken by your physician was the direct cause of a significant injury or medical complication.

It’s important to note that your case will be individually assessed, meaning your settlement will not be shared with others. Our priority is to ensure the best possible outcome for you, not inflating attorney profits.

Frequently asked questions about medical malpractice claims

If you have anything else you want to ask, reach out to us.

I got hurt in the emergency room. Why won’t a lawyer take my case?

In most states, a medical malpractice case in the emergency room will proceed as normal, no matter where in the healthcare facility the injury occurred.


However, things work differently if you live in Texas, since you’ll have a lot more to prove. Most attorneys refuse to take emergency room cases in Texas because the plaintiff must prove that their doctor (or another medical professional) acted with “willful and wanton negligence,” which can be closely compared to “gross negligence.” This is a much higher standard for the plaintiff to clear, and most cases are sadly not able to meet that standard.

What if my injury was caused by an accident my doctor didn’t mean to make?

No one goes through life without making the occasional error— even doctors, nurses and specialists who have been practicing medicine for decades can unintentionally make a mistake on the job. Sudden unforeseen events can cause unexpected mishaps, but who receives the blame if an honest accident causes lifelong consequences?


In these instances, victims have the option to pursue a slightly different type of personal injury case: medical negligence. Though medical malpractice and medical negligence cases act similarly on paper, they are ultimately designed to prove two different concepts.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after my treatment?
In most states, with a few exceptions, plaintiffs have 2-3 years to file a lawsuit.

In Maryland, the statute of limitations expires after 5 years, and in Minnesota, plaintiffs receive 4 years.

However, in Ohio, Louisiana and Kentucky, victims only have one year after medical care was given to file a malpractice lawsuit. If you live in any of these three states, you don’t have much time to file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations closes for your case.
