Types of Medical Malpractice Cases in Texas

Medical malpractice cases run the gamut from minor to major mistakes. But no matter the severity of the mistake, consequences for the patient can be serious. A doctor’s small error can be a patient’s big problem.

Some common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Birth Injuries: Mistakes made by medical professionals during birth may result in permanent disabilities like brain damage or even death.
  • Diagnosing Errors: A misdiagnosis may direct a doctor into prescribing the wrong medications or even recommending completely unnecessary surgeries.
  • Surgical Mistakes: Surgical mistakes could result in leaving foreign objects in patient’s bodies, accidentally cutting vital organs, paralysis, or infections.
  • Emergency Room Mistakes: Failure to take a proper patient history can result in medication reactions.
  • Medication Errors: A doctor’s careless prescription of the wrong medication can cause illness or disability, and can even be fatal.
  • Hospital Negligence: Examples of hospital negligence cases include the use of unsterilized equipment or the administration of expired medications.

  • Best in the business!

    “Mr. Locke and his staff were absolutely wonderful and courteous throughout the entire process. I have heard some stories of lawyers from people in the past that tried to get you to settle for what the court offers and that is definitely not the case with Mr. Locke. He battled for me for as long as it took to get what we deserved which was a complete dismissal of my case! Thanks to him and his staff, I do not have the burden of having a felony on my record. I will be forever grateful! Thank you for being GREAT!!!”
