Medical malpractice cases are some of the most difficult to handle in Texas. In 2003, extensive tort reform was pushed through our legislature by big insurance companies. These big insurance companies manufactured false claims of a medical malpractice crisis and even convinced Texas voters to amend the State Constitution to allow caps on damages. No other class of citizens in Texas has their common law damages capped, as before 2003 such efforts were repeatedly found to be unconstitutional and unenforceable by the courts. Since 2003, the big insurance companies have continued to create an unlevel playing field for injured patients and their families.
While their corporate profits continue to soar, our hospitals and other health care facilities have become increasingly dangerous. Medical malpractice occurs much more often than it did before tort reform. Bad doctors flock to Texas because they know that it will be difficult to hold them responsible when patients are harmed. Health care providers often place their own financial interests above patient safety. That is why you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney if you or one of your loved ones have suffered medical malpractice.
