Meeting Malpractice with Medical Expertise
At Hampton & King, we employ a certified doctor and a Ph.D. nurse on staff. Their expertise and experience equip our firm to take on the most complex and difficult-to-understand cases in Texas, New Mexico, and nationwide. Our Houston firm is one of the only firms in the Southwest to have a full-time doctor on staff dedicated to using her medical knowledge to develop malpractice cases. Firms who only handle medical malpractice claims on an occasional basis wouldn't invest in having an MD in-house, but we would.
Specificity of practice and investigation is part of the competitive edge of having a doctor on staff. In other words, we are able to identify likely areas of negligence more quickly and precisely. For example, conditions like Wernicke's Syndrome or an air embolism can appear to be "bad luck," or in Wernicke's case, the patient's doing. As experienced malpractice attorneys and medical professionals, we understand that Wernicke's can also be caused by negligent lack of Vitamin B supplements during long-term IV treatment, or poor gastric stapling.
As medical professionals, we can also identify when a lung infection is likely to be the result of an esophageal perforation (commonly caused by surgical error, though few patients may be informed of it occurring). Even simple problems like wrapping bandages too tightly or creating an excessively tight cast can result in compartment syndrome—which can lead to permanent organ damage or amputation.
Finally, our team understands how long a doctor should take to identify a serious diagnostic issue, such as the symptoms of bowel ischemia or mesenteric vein clots. These are issues that can drastically change a patient's life in a matter of hours and minutes—which is precisely why a doctor is trained to identify the symptoms.
When you call for a free consultation, our Medical Director, Dr. Krista Kurtyan, M.D., will evaluate the specific issues surrounding your treatment. They can accurately inform you whether or not you have a valid claim (and why). They will also provide insight regarding your case until its conclusion, preparing it for success as thoroughly and effectively as possible. When you want real answers about your medical malpractice case, you call Hampton & King.
Equipped to Handle the Most Complex Medical Mistakes
Our Houston firm is one of the only firms prepared to handle the types of medical issues other lawyers avoid or turn away. Anesthesia cases are particularly difficult to parse for non-medical professionals. Understanding what happened to you, why it happened, and who is responsible is especially difficult because anesthesia use comes with severe baseline risks.
The common types of anesthesia mistakes are:
- Misintubation (aka inadvertent intubation)
- Right mainstem bronchus intubation
- Laryngeal Mask Airway misplacement
- Propofol overdoses
- Versed overdoses (oral midazolam)
- Midazolam overdoses
- Benzodiazepine toxicity (aka Xanaz or alprazolam toxicity)
Our medical and legal experience empowers us to understand what happened to you as well as your own doctor or hospital. Our medical staff helps us develop these cases first hand to ensure that when we pursue a claim, it has the strength to succeed in court.
