Holding Texas doctors accountable for medical malpractice

It seems like cancer is everywhere nowadays. One reason it seems so prevalent is because diagnosis techniques have advanced significantly over the years, allowing medical professionals to more readily identify that cancer is affecting a patient. Likewise, medical advances have allowed doctors to more effectively treat cancer patients, allowing them to increase their chances of survival and reclaim as much of their life as possible.

Yet, as was discussed in last week's post, much of a medical treatment's success depends on human action and interpretation. Doctors must order the proper tests, correctly read their results, then prescribe a proper course of treatment that is adhered to as ordered. A mistake in any of these steps can lead to unjust harm, leaving a cancer patient with a worsened condition, additional pain and suffering, and sometimes even a lesser chance of surviving the disease.

Those who have been harmed by a failure to diagnose and other medical malpractice should carefully consider their legal options, as compensation may be available to them. To win one of these cases, though, a victim must prove that his doctor owed him a duty of care, that duty was breached, and that breached caused his injuries. The burden of proof is on the victim, so he needs to be sure that he has the legal assistance needed to put forth as strong of a case as possible. If he doesn't, then his claim may be denied and much needed compensation may be lost.

The legal team at Davis & Davis Attorneys at Law know that a lot is at stake when medical malpractice has left a victim with damages.
