Do You Have a Health Care Liability Claim?
How do you know if your situation falls under the health care liability claims umbrella? Well, according to Texas Law, you have one if your claim meets these three requirements:
- It is against some type of health care provider.
- It deals with treatment or the failure to treat, which then leads to an injury or death.
- There is a departure from accepted medical and health care standards.
Does this sound like the situation you have found yourself in? If so, contact Simmons and Fletcher, P.C., and let’s talk about your potential claim.
What You Need in a Medical Liability Attorney
Now that you know you could benefit from enlisting the aid of an attorney, you need to understand what sort of lawyer you should be looking for. Make sure the attorney you call on:
- Understands health care liability law — You certainly do not want a divorce lawyer handling your health care liability claims. Sure they might be a great lawyer, but you need someone specializing in personal injury claims. Simmons and Fletcher can provide you with that lawyer.
- Is one of integrity — Simmons and Fletcher is an openly Christian law firm. What does that mean to you? We operate with the utmost integrity. That means any move we make on your behalf, or anyone we put you in contact with, will handle your case with compassion in an upright manner. Your wellbeing is our number on responsibility.
- Fights with extreme aggression — When it comes to filing health care liability claims, you cannot afford to hire a lawyer who sits back and lets events unfold. Instead, you need a trial lawyer who prepares for your case as if he is going to have to fight all the way to the courtroom—even though you have a solid chance of settling long before.
There are many types of health care liability claims. We will be happy to discuss the following types of cases with you:
