Dallas Medical Malpractice Attorneys

The Experience You Need to Bring a Successful Suit

Recovering from an injury or surgery can take time. But if treatment for your injury or condition resulted in furthering your injury—or did further harm—you may be eligible to take action and hold the healthcare providers responsible in a medical malpractice claim.

Medical malpractice claims are based on errors made by medical professionals. You must show that the mistake occurred because the doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider failed to adhere to the standard of care that any other professional in their specialty would have followed, resulting in your injury.

At Hernandez & Baggett, PLLC, we are Dallas medical malpractice attorneys who have helped numerous patients get the emotional and financial relief they need in malpractice cases. Don’t wait for relief—act now by letting our firm protect your rights and health today.

The Role of Expert Reports

Before the suit goes to court, you—with the help of your attorney—must serve the defendant with at least one expert report, which is an opinion by another medical professional.

An expert report must make a “good faith effort” to show the following:

  • The standards of care a patient should have received
  • The way the defendant failed to meet those standards
  • How that failure caused the injury in question

Though an expert report is not itself evidence in the case, the report can be challenged in a hearing. If successfully challenged, the case may be dismissed. In order to make sure the expert report demonstrates what it should and is served correctly, you want a Dallas medical malpractice attorney to guide this part of the process.

Time Limits on Malpractice Suits

Two Texas laws limit the time frame within which a claimant can bring a medical malpractice lawsuit. The first is the Statute of Limitations. In Texas, generally a patient has two years from the date the injury could be discovered to file the suit. This date is not necessarily the same as when the injury happened.

The other law that limits malpractice suits is the Statute of Repose, which is a bit more straightforward. This law states that a lawsuit must be brought within 10 years of the date the injury actually occurred.

The Role of a Dallas Medical Malpractice Attorney

In order to file a medical malpractice suit, you need an attorney who is thoroughly acquainted with the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code. Furthermore, your Dallas medical malpractice attorney should have extensive trial experience, giving you the assurance that you have the best chance possible for relief of your economic and emotional damages.
