Medical malpractice occurs when an individual is harmed by the negligence of a physician, nurse, chiropractor or staff member of a hospital. Medical providers are held to a high standard of care. Unfortunately, many thousands of horrible injuries and deaths occur every year due to the malpractice and negligence of health care providers.
To prosecute a medical malpractice case, Texas law requires that an independent physician or health care provider evaluate the conduct of the defendant doctor or medical provider. This expert is then required to provide a report detailing how the defendant doctor or medical provider breached the standard of care which resulted in damages.
