FAQs About Medical Malpractice

Below are some frequently asked questions about Medical Malpractice:

How Do I Know If I Have A Medical Malpractice Case?

Medical malpractice is a type of negligence. You may have a case if your healthcare provider fell below the expected standard of care and their negligence caused you foreseeable harm. The standard of care is what a reasonable medical professional would do under the circumstances.

If you believe you have a case, call our team at McLaurin Law to speak to a Houston medical malpractice lawyer. We will examine the facts and the available evidence and advise whether you can seek compensation.

Establishing negligence and causation isn’t enough: Your damages must also be significant. If your injuries aren’t severe or life-changing, pursuing an insurance claim or a lawsuit may not be cost-effective. Depending on your injuries, your attorney can advise you on the best course of action.

I Lost A Family Member Due To Medical Malpractice. Can I File A Wrongful Death Claim?

You might be able to file a wrongful death claim if your loved one died due to the negligence of a healthcare provider. However, wrongful death law is complicated, and many factors come into play. Contact our team to speak to a Houston wrongful death attorney to find out if you have a case. They can explain your options and help you file a wrongful death claim if you are eligible.

Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer Who Also Has Insurance Knowledge?

There is no legal requirement for a personal injury lawyer to have insurance training or background to handle medical malpractice cases. However, it can certainly help. Our lead attorney, Jason C. McLaurin, is a medical malpractice lawyer who used to work in the insurance space. He knows the tactics insurance companies may use to reduce your payout and how to counteract them.

Will My Doctor Lose Their Medical License If I Sue For Medical Malpractice?

No, your doctor or other health care professional won’t lose their license or job if you sue for medical malpractice. The goal of a medical malpractice lawsuit is to compensate the victim’s family, not to punish the medical provider.

Dealing with the death of a family member is never easy. At McLaurin Law, we can’t ease your pain, but we can help you seek compensation for the loss of your loved one. Call us at (713) 461-6500 or fill out our contact form to schedule a free strategy session with a medical malpractice lawyer from our team.
