Austin Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Medical malpractice is a serious matter that can cause further complications, permanent harm, or untimely death. If you or a loved one suffered unnecessarily due to a medical mistake or error that resulted from negligence, you might qualify for compensation. An Austin medical malpractice lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help you pursue the compensation and justice you deserve for the negligent actions or inaction of a medical professional.

How Can An Austin Medical Malpractice Attorney Help?

The pursuit of financial compensation and accountability for medical malpractice is an often complicated and confusing process. Depending upon the facts of your case, multiple parties may face liability for your damages.

Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys can determine how to best proceed with your case. Our attention to detail protects your best interests at a time when you should rest.

Handling the Insurance Company

It’s important to remember that insurance companies do not have your best interest in mind. They are a business interested in protecting their bottom line. That means they will be looking to settle for the smallest amount of money possible. This will frequently be far less than the compensation you deserve and may not even cover your medical bills.

With a medical malpractice lawyer from Loncar Lyon Jenkins on your side, insurance companies will think twice before trying to lowball you. They know that our team of medical malpractice lawyers prepares each case for trial. Our commitment to seeking fair results may lead us to trial, but we will aim for a settlement before that point.

If an insurance company seeks to speak with you alone and before you have an opportunity to call us, turn them down. Secure our services and refer them to our team. Refusing to speak with them takes the pressure off you and prevents you from accepting a settlement that is less than you deserve.

The Impact of Medical Malpractice On Your Life

Seeking medical treatment requires trusting healthcare providers with your life. From a medical diagnosis to treating an injury, you assume you are in safe hands. You trust that the standard of care is of the highest quality and that medical negligence is rare. 

A study by John Hopkins Medicine highlights the seriousness of medical errors. The report issued by the research team suggests that medical mistakes are the third-leading cause of death in the United States.

A medical mistake can include one or more of the following:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Unnecessary treatment
  • “Never events” that should never happen
  • Health-care associated infections
  • Medication mistakes
  • Birthing injury

You expect to feel better after seeking medical care—not worse. The setback caused by medical malpractice can compound your physical, financial, and emotional woes as you deal with new health issues.

A medical mistake adds to your existing costs and can prolong—or prevent—your return to work. The impact on your life is often severe and, depending on your case, sometimes permanent. When medical standards fail, whether from a defective medical product or an avoidable error by a medical provider, you are left with the consequences.

If you have suffered unnecessary harm due to a medical professional’s actions, seek help from an Austin medical malpractice lawyer without delay.

Medical Professionals Have a Duty of Care

Medical professionals are human and, as such, are prone to making mistakes. A tired doctor or poorly trained nurse, however, is no excuse for your discomfort and suffering from a botched medical procedure.

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our legal team prepares medical malpractice cases by applying the details of your case to the four legal elements required for proving negligence:

  • The professional duty of care owed to the patient
  • The breach of such care
  • Injury caused by the breach
  • Resulting damages

Medical negligence can range from prescription errors, an incorrect diagnosis, birth injuries, anesthesia errors, foreign objects left inside, or a surgical error resulting in further damage. When you are the victim of medical negligence, you deserve fair compensation from the responsible parties.

What is the Statute Of Limitations for Medical Malpractice in Texas?

The Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 74.251 allows two years for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit. This statute of limitations can be shortened or extended depending on the unique circumstances of your case. And while two years may sound like a sufficient amount of time, dealing with multiple medical appointments and recovering from your experience can cause you to lose track of time.

Missing the deadline for filing your case is not something you want to happen. If you miss the required filing deadline, it can prevent you from pursuing compensation forever. We strongly recommend you work with us so we can ensure your case stays on track at all times. Our experienced lawyers will file all of the relevant paperwork when it needs to be filed and you can rest knowing that your case will always meet court requirements.

Types of Compensation Possible in Medical Malpractice Cases

Each medical malpractice case is unique, due to the type of malpractice and the many possible resulting damages available.
 
The types of compensation possible in such cases include:

  • Continuous medical costs for treatments, medications, and services
  • Lost wages due to significant time missed from work
  • Diminished earning capacity if a patient is unable to return to previous employment
  • Dolor y sufrimiento

If you lost a close loved one due to medical malpractice, please accept our condolences. We understand your pain and we want to help you. Loncar Lyon Jenkins fights for compensation related to fatal injuries such as final medical expenses and funeral costs.
