Have you been injured by medical malpractice in Dallas?
Our experienced attorneys can help you get justice
Doctors are supposed to do no harm. But it doesn't always work out that way. A doctor or other health-care professional may have been negligent, causing you injury. That is never acceptable. The Dallas medical malpractice lawyers at Tracey & Fox will fight to hold that person responsible and get you the financial compensation you deserve.
You may be eligible to recover past and future medical expenses and lost wages. You may also be able to collect damages (financial compensation) for mental anguish, pain and suffering, disfigurement and physical impairment. Punitive damages are also a possibility. The value of your claim will depend on the details of your case.
There are many different examples of medical malpractice. A patient is given a transfusion of the wrong blood type in a hospital emergency room. A doctor does not read test results correctly and provides the wrong care. A patient about to get surgery is given the wrong amount of anesthesia. Or a doctor misses the signs that a patient has cancer or heart disease.
Another example of medical malpractice is neglecting a resident of a nursing home by failing to give medications or feed them enough food. Or a patient may be physically or sexually abused in a healthcare facility due to inadequate supervision or security.
Getting results for Dallas medical malpractice victims
Dallas is home to many hospitals-Baylor University Medical Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, Medical City Dallas Hospital and Parkland Memorial Hospital among them. There also many health-care facilities, nursing homes and private medical practices. Thousands of responsible and ethical medical professionals work in the city. But even responsible health care workers make mistakes. And when they do, they should be held accountable for their actions. That's where we come in.
It's simple. A health-care professional did not do his or her job and you were injured as a result. You deserve compensation.
But such cases are much more complicated than you might think. An attorney must prove that a health-care professional was negligent or did not provide proper care. A lawyer must also prove that their actions directly led to your injury.
Every detail matters in Dallas medical malpractice cases
That's why we take the time to build a strong case. Our attorneys conduct a thorough investigation and review all the evidence. This includes all related documents, witness statements and expert opinions. We will look for signs of negligence. And when we are able to prove it, we will seek financial compensation for what happened to you.
The amount of compensation will depend on the details of your case. The law allows victims of medical malpractice to seek damages for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, pain and suffering, disfigurement and physical impairment. You may also be able to recover punitive damages.
We don't expect the health-care professional or the insurance company to just accept responsibility and agree to pay. That's why we'll be ready to fight your case in court. Our goal is to get you the maximum compensation possible. Many times, we are able to do that through a negotiated settlement, but we're always prepared to go to trial.
We take this approach to cases because it produces results. Through our hard work and attention to detail, we have been able to recover hundreds of millions of dollars for clients.
Don't wait to take legal action. It's important to start work on your case as soon as possible. A delay could also affect your ability to recover compensation. Contact us to set up an appointment with one of our attorneys for a free case evaluation.
