Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Medical malpractice is another sub-category of wrongful death lawsuits. However, recent tort reform in Texas has made it much more difficult for wrongful death survivors to seek legal restitution through a medical malpractice lawsuit. More on this website
While tort reform was intended to prevent frivolous lawsuits from tying up the court systems, it also made it very complicated for legitimate medical malpractice lawsuits to proceed against negligent medical professionals. And if that isn’t enough, damage caps now exist on the amounts that can be sought – and paid – in one single medical malpractice lawsuit. This means that a bereaved family may not be able to seek fair compensation for their loss in one suit that would be commensurate to the actually incurred damages they have incurred. And though damage caps and other complications surrounding medical malpractice do make it more difficult to win fair judgments, there is still a way for families of those who have suffered wrongful death to recover fair recompense When we investigate a medical malpractice claim that has resulted in wrongful death, we will work to identify all liable parties. Some might have caps placed on the number of damages that can be sought from them while others might not. Then the plan is similar to filing third-party claims in a work-related accidental death case. And the more defendants who are drawn into your claim or lawsuit, the better the chance your family will receive total fair compensation.
