Houston residents usually trust their physicians to diagnose what is wrong with them and prescribe a treatment plan that will work to resolve their situation. When this doesn't occur and a doctor misdiagnoses a patient's condition there can be delayed treatment and unnecessary pain and suffering.
Health concerns affect every Houston resident sometime during their life. Most of the time their needs are met by caring, proficient and skilled doctors. But, occasionally, surgical errors do occur and negligence on the part of the medical staff can be one reason.
Houston moms and dads know how special the birth of their child is. Any baby's entrance into the world is a highly anticipated event. Most births occur without incident, but when something goes wrong during birth and there is a wrongful death of a child it can be devastating, particularly if such a loss is precipitated by preventable birth injuries.
Houston residents understand that sometimes medical procedures can have negative outcomes, even when medical professionals are following proper protocol. However, when negligent activities such as incorrect dosages are performed on the part of a medical professional, families can be devastated by the results.
Many Houston residents know how hard it is to deal with chronic physical pain. Pain brought on by accidents, chronic diseases such as cancer, and many other reasons can cause extreme discomfort. Physicians often prescribe painkillers for these patients, but when a failure to follow acceptable standards occurs, these medications can cause more harm than good.
