“We’re here today in the hope of helping these families get answers.  The loss of their loved ones was devastating, but then to hear later that their loved one might have been deprived of a liver and a chance to live … I can tell you that the second injury they’ve suffered … devastating.”
– Attorney John Davis from press conference held April 30th

 
Many families who were affected by this tragic situation are researching their legal options.  Many of them may have a case against Memorial Herman and could file a lawsuit to recover the damages their family suffered.  Davis & Davis’s attorneys are here to help these families as they seek justice.
 
“The timing of liver transplants is critical, and even a single day’s delay can be fatal. The alleged actions of Bynon have not only resulted in direct fatalities but led to the suspension of the kidney and liver transplant programs during the crucial investigation, further risking patient lives,”
– Attorney Steve Davis, Davis & Davis

What we know:  Dr. J. Steve Bynon, Chief of Abdominal Transplantation at Memorial Hermann and U.T. Health in Houston is accused of altering patient profiles so patients would not qualify for liver transplants, leading to the death of numerous patients as they waited for their life saving surgery.  The hospital is in the early stages of their investigation and has shut down their transplant programs, forcing hundreds of liver transplant candidates to seek life-saving healthcare elsewhere.  Hundreds of families are facing uncertain futures and unfortunately many have lost loved ones while waiting for their chance at life.

Updates:

April 30, 2024 – In a press conference held April 30 with Houston media outlets, the legal team from Davis & Davis announced they are representing several families in their pursuit to find answers.  The attorneys have received inquiries from multiple families seeking guidance and legal advice, as they consider their legal options.

John Davis’s close friend is one of the firm’s clients.  Davis stated, “I went through his son being ill with him, day by day. I went through him being at Memorial Hermann trying to get a transplant and he died,” Davis said. “And when I talked with his father, about two weeks ago, he was so much more distraught than he had ever been through the whole process including his son’s death….Devastated is the word that comes to mind, but that’s just not adequate to describe the state he and his wife are in.”

Representing several families, Davis & Davis filed an intervention, joining a restraining order against Dr. Bynon at Memorial Hermann – Texas Medical Center in Houston to keep him from altering or further manipulating patient files.  The filing will maintain strict security around files to preserve patient data, documents, and other evidence essential to guaranteeing a full discovery.

As more families come forward considering a lawsuit, the lawyers from Davis & Davis want to ensure evidence in the case isn’t destroyed so they can determine what happened, what patient data was manipulated, and why.

“When we get the medical records and we have the opportunity to have liver experts look at the records, we should be able to tell whether or not this person was truly a candidate and whether they were well enough to warrant getting one of these precious livers,” Davis said.
