3 Medical Malpractice Questions

Were you seriously injured by a medical professional? Check out these 3 medical malpractice questions, then call our San Antonio lawyers to get started.

1. Do I have a claim if I was given the wrong prescription?

3 Medical Malpractice QuestionsOne of the more common medical malpractice cases in Texas involves wrong prescriptions. It happens more than you think. You go to the pharmacy, pick up the prescription that your doctor called in, and go home. You then start taking it.

Not only are you not getting better from what you went to the doctor for in the first place, but now you’re having all sorts of bad side effects. That pharmacist is responsible. The law requires them to use due care and make sure that you’re getting your prescription, not somebody else’s. If you’ve been harmed because you got the wrong prescription, call an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who can look at your case the right way.

2. Why can’t I hold the doctor responsible for my injury?

Texas medical malpractice cases need to be supported by the law. Sometimes there are just bad results. People want to know: why can’t I hold the doctor responsible? Many times, through no negligence of the doctor, bad things happen.

The only way for you to know that is to hire an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who can review your records, and have them independently reviewed by an expert doctor. Just because something bad happens, doesn’t mean the doctor’s responsible. If they are, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer is the difference between you recovering for everything that’s happening to you or not.

3. How much does it cost to file a medical malpractice claim?

A lot of people think Texas medical malpractice cases, by their very nature, involve expensive lawyers. I’m going to tell you right now, beware. I’ve had people call me and say, “I ran my medical malpractice case by this lawyer and he said he needed $5,000 to look at it. I paid him but he said I didn’t have a case.” That lawyer wasn’t looking out for you.

A good medical malpractice lawyer in the state of Texas should be on a contingency fee. That means they don’t earn a penny unless they win your case. That means you don’t pay a dime of the filing fees, of the depositions, or of the expert witnesses; that law firm does. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer knows it’s expensive, it’s a long process, and you can’t afford it. Only hire a contingency fee lawyer. Hire an experienced lawyer who can tell you, “I won’t get paid unless I win your case.”
