Medical professionals in the state of Texas have a legal and ethical obligation to protect the health and safety of their patients; however, sometimes negligence or a mistake occurs in a patient’s care. When such errors are reported, claims of malpractice may arise.
Our Texas medical malpractice attorneys at Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers point out that several cases that have been brought against one Texas surgeon exemplify how medical professionals can be held accountable for their actions in our state. At least three Texas medical malpractice lawsuits have been filed against a single doctor after he allegedly botched treatments and procedures.
According to the Insurance Journal, a suit was filed against the 44-year-old doctor in Dallas County after errors were made in a patient’s surgery. The mistakes resulted in the patient being left susceptible to suffering strokes and contributed to her death. Other allegations against the doctor include performing surgery on the wrong part of a patient’s body and leaving surgical tools inside the body of another patient.
Not only is the doctor facing civil litigation as a result of his actions, but his medical license has been revoked and criminal charges have been filed against him as well.
At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, we believe in a patient’s right to quality professional medical care. That’s why our Texas personal injury lawyers are hopeful a decision being reached in these lawsuits can bring the victims peace and closure.
