Overview of Medical Malpractice in Texas
In response to pressure from the healthcare industry, the Texas legislature passed a series of tort reform measures in 2003 that makes it very difficult for Texans to win medical malpractice cases.

A Little More about Defective Medical Devices
A study released by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine presented data that linked faulty medical devices to the personal injuries suffered by more than 450,000 Americans each year. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) closely monitors the performance of virtually every type of medical device, the fact remains that some of the devices possess serious defects that place patients in harm’s way. Medical devices can be defective because of several reasons, including design, manufacturing, and/or distribution issues.

The Lingering Negative Consequences of Surgical Errors
When you go under the knife, you expect the healthcare professional holding the knife to be one of the best surgeons at his or her specialty. However, due to the risks that are often associated with surgical procedures, there is the chance that something can go awry during surgery. A medical study published by the Washington Post stated that surgery errors and mistakes resulted in more than 238,000 deaths over a four year stretch that could have been prevented. The cost of the surgical errors and mistakes, which primarily came in the form of Medicare payouts, exceeded $8.8 billion. Surgical errors and mistakes have become so widespread that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid have recently began to deny payments for the errors and mistakes made by surgeons.
