Day in and day out, Hampton & King handles birth injury and medical malpractice claims for plaintiffs. Over the years, we have come to understand the ins and outs of these cases: what the judge looks for, what type of evidence to present, and what the defendants will do. If you or someone you love believes they have a medical malpractice or birth injury case, consider the following questions:

  • Was there a duty owed to the patient? This describes a doctor-patient relationship where the doctor (or other healthcare professional) had a duty to care for his or her patient.
  • Was that duty breached? This describes a deviation from the acceptable standard of care.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice is simply medical negligence. Health care providers must obey the "standard of care" for their specialty. For example, a nurse must act as a reasonably prudent nurse would act under similar circumstances. An obstetrician must do what a reasonably prudent obstetrician would do, and so on. If they fail to do so, they may are negligent. However, the negligence must be the "proximate cause" of legally-recoverable damages. Negligence that does not cause injury does not constitute a viable case. That is why consulting with a legal advocate right away is important.

How Do I Know if I Have a Case?

If you believe you have been the victim of medical negligence, you should have your case evaluated by an experienced medical malpractice attorney in Houston.

What really matters

When choosing a law firm to represent you in a medical malpractice, it's important to do your homework. Not every law firm that advertises on the internet has the experience and resources necessary to take on a complicated medical malpractice case.

Resources Matter

Medical malpractice cases are expensive if done right. Retaining expert testimony from medical professionals alone can cost thousands of dollars. Because we don't charge our clients a fee unless we win, we have the financial resources you need to retain these experts up front.

Focus Matters

Our law firm has been described as selective, but for good reason. We don't take on a large caseload, and we are particular about the cases we take on. This is so that the clients we do take on get our full attention and focus.

Experience Matters

Medical malpractice is about as complex as you can get when it comes to tort law. You need an attorney in your corner who dedicates 100% of their practice to medical malpractice representation for plaintiffs.
