Unfortunately, healthcare providers aren’t immune to making mistakes. Even those who’ve undergone extensive training and have years of experience in the field, such as cardiologists, are known to make mistakes from time to time. That said, if you believe you’re a victim of cardiology malpractice, Davis & Davis is here to help. Read this blog and contact an experienced Houston, Texas cardiology malpractice lawyer today to learn more about this type of malpractice and how we can help if you’ve been harmed because of it. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common forms of cardiology malpractice in Texas?

Cardiologists can commit malpractice by taking a wide range of careless actions. The following are some of the most common issues that warrant legal action against cardiologists in the Lonestar State:

  • Diagnosis errors, including failing to diagnose a heart issue timely, incorrectly diagnosing such an issue (like a heart attack), or failing to diagnose a heart issue altogether.
  • Failing to examine medical records before making medical decisions, or failing to adequately document medical history as it occurs.
  • Making errors during heart surgery, such as wrong-site surgeries or leaving surgical instruments inside of a patient’s body.
  • Immediately moving to the most drastic course of action, such as open heart surgery, instead of taking a more conservative approach to start.

If you have experienced any of these forms of medical malpractice, please reach out to a skilled Harris County, Texas medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible.

How long do I have to file a malpractice claim in Texas?

In Texas, victims of medical malpractice typically have up to two years from the date the incident of malpractice occurred to pursue compensation from the physician responsible for the damages they sustained. Don’t make the mistake of waiting longer than two years to sue. Our legal team is here to help you today.
