Frequently Asked Questions for Medical Malpractice Beaumont, TX

If a mistake was made during my treatment, but it didn’t cause me harm do I still have a case?

In Texas, if a mistake was made during your treatment but it didn’t cause any harm, you may not have a case for medical malpractice. To have a successful medical malpractice case, you must have suffered an injury or harm due to the negligence or mistake of a healthcare professional.

How long do you have to file a medical malpractice in Beaumont?

In Beaumont, Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim is two years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury, whichever is later.

If I signed a consent form agreeing to my surgery, but something went wrong do I still have a case?

Signing a consent form does not necessarily absolve healthcare professionals of liability in the event of medical malpractice. Consent forms are designed to inform patients of the risks and benefits associated with a procedure, but they do not provide blanket protection against negligence or mistakes. If you can demonstrate that the healthcare professional deviated from the standard of care, acted negligently, or committed a medical error during your procedure, you may have a viable medical malpractice case.

How do you prove the medical team made a mistake?

Proving that a medical team made a mistake requires gathering evidence, such as medical records, expert testimony, and witness statements. Medical malpractice cases can be complex, and it is often necessary to retain the services of a medical expert to evaluate the care provided and determine whether the medical team deviated from the standard of care. If the expert concludes that there was a breach of the standard of care, this can help to establish liability for medical malpractice.

What is “preponderance of the evidence”?

“Preponderance of the evidence” is the burden of proof standard used in civil cases in Texas, including medical malpractice cases. It means that the plaintiff (the injured patient) must prove that it is more likely than not that the medical professional’s negligence caused their injuries. In other words, the evidence presented by the plaintiff must be sufficient to show that it is more likely than not that the medical professional’s actions or omissions caused the plaintiff’s harm.

How do you know if you have a medical malpractice case?

To determine if you have a medical malpractice case, several criteria must be met, including establishing that the healthcare professional breached the standard of care, and that the breach caused you harm.

What are the most common injuries suffered from a medical malpractice?

Some common types of injuries resulting from medical malpractice include surgical errors, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a medical condition, medication errors, birth injuries, and infections acquired in a hospital or healthcare facility.

What damages can I can recover from a medical malpractice case?

Damages that may be recovered in a medical malpractice case can include economic damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and future lost income, as well as non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.

How do I file a medical malpractice claim in Beaumont?

To file a medical malpractice claim in Beaumont, Texas, you must first consult with a medical malpractice attorney who can evaluate your case and determine whether you have a viable claim.
