Under Texas law a claim for medical negligence occurs when a physician or health-care provider breaches their duty of care owed to the patient which proximately causes harm to the patient.
This can happen in a variety of ways including:
These are injures caused by physicians or health care providers at the time of delivery. The physicians or health care providers ignore the mother’s symptoms, misdiagnose the mother, fail to perform a timely C-section, have faulty policies and procedures in place, and/or improperly deliver the baby. These injuries can include cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, Erb’s palsy, childbirth defects, and brain damage.
These injuries occur when your physician properly prescribes you the correct medication, but a pharmacy like Walgreens, CVS, or Rite Aid dispenses the incorrect medication, wrong instructions, or dispenses two medications that should not be taken simultaneously. These injuries can include, death, nausea, seizures, brain damage, and lead to hospitalization.
These injuries occur when a drug is properly prescribed and taken, but the side effects of the drug cause serious injuries. These drugs include Xarelto, Zofran, IVC filters, Invokana, and Risperdal. The injuries can include a variety of symptoms from death, pain, birth defects, blood clots, and abnormal tissue growth.
