Our Surgical Error Lawyers Advocate for Injured Texans
At Underwood Law Office, our team of attorneys fights for our clients’ fair and just financial recovery. If a doctor, team of physicians, or facility acted with medical negligence and caused complications, their victims deserve compensation and justice. Our lawyers know how to hold them legally responsible.
We handle all aspects of these cases for our clients. You can read our reviews and client case results to see that our clients recommend us to friends and family. When representing a client in one of these cases, we work based on contingency. We do not charge upfront fees and only charge attorney’s fees if we secure a payout.
We Prove How Negligence Led to the Surgical Error
To build a medical malpractice case, we must prove four elements:
- There was a doctor-patient relationship and, therefore, a duty of care.
- The doctor breached their duty of care.
- This breach caused a preventable injury.
- The patient incurred damages as a result.
Our team knows how to prove these cases. We have a strong network of medical experts who can confirm these four elements. We call on a surgeon from our network to review your relevant medical records and determine:
- What care they required
- The acceptable and expected standard of care
- How the doctor and team treated you and what happened
- Whether this was medical malpractice
We use the evidence we gather to pursue compensation for our client. This requires us to navigate the Texas medical malpractice system to recover a payout or court award.
We Seek Financial Recovery Following Your Surgical Error in Anna
The money you can recover depends on your damages. Our attorneys gather evidence to show your expenses and value your case accordingly. We use supporting information to learn what constitutes a fair settlement. Recoverable economic damages could include:
- Medical bills
- Future care and support costs
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Related out-of-pocket expenses
You are also eligible to recover money for your pain and suffering. However, Texas caps non-economic damages under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 74.301. These damages are generally limited to $250,000, although some exceptions exist.
If your loved one passed away from a surgical error, you may have a valid wrongful death case. Our team manages these cases, too. We can review your options today at no cost.
