San Antonio medical malpractice attorneys
We take action when you've been injured
You went to a health-care professional so you could feel better. But that professional did not provide proper care. Now, you're much worse off. Fortunately, you have legal rights. You may be able to seek financial compensation for your injuries. And our San Antonio medical malpractice attorneys at Tracey & Fox can help.
A simple definition of medical malpractice is when a health-care professional does not do his or her job, and somebody gets hurt as a result. But it's more than a mistake. The professional had to have been negligent or failed to provide the proper standard of care.
One example is when a hospital staff member gives someone too much of a medication. Another is a doctor who performs the wrong procedure on a patient. Or a surgeon who cuts into the wrong part of the body. Another example is a doctor who fails to diagnose cancer when the signs and test results are clear.
It may also be a case of medical malpractice when the resident of a nursing home or another health-care facility is not fed regularly or is the victim of an assault.
Taking action on your case
There are tens of thousands of health-care professionals who work in San Antonio. They work in hospitals such as University Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Baptist Medical Center, Nix Medical Center and Acuity Hospital of South Texas. They work in nursing homes and other health-care facilities, as well as private practices.
Most of them are responsible and ethical. But there are some who act negligently, or who fail to provide a standard level of care. If you've been injured as a result of that negligence, you need to contact us and get an experienced medical malpractice attorney on your side. Health-care professionals rarely take responsibility for their actions. The insurance company won't, either. That's when we get to work.
We will conduct our own investigation to look for evidence of negligence. We'll review your medical records and other documents. We'll interview witnesses. If necessary, we'll bring in experts. We leave no stone unturned. Our attorneys take the time to build the strongest case possible. Why? Because it gets results.
