Hospitals, doctors, nurses and other health care providers are dedicated to helping their patients. But Hospitals and health care providers can also make mistakes. A recent Johns Hopkins study suggests medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., estimating more than 250,000 deaths per year are due to medical error.
Conversely, medical malpractice does not occur every time there is a bad outcome.
In 2003, Texas tort reform eroded many legal rights of patients. Today, medical malpractice cases are difficult to pursue. A medical negligence case can only be evaluated by a thorough analysis of the medicine and medical records.
