Medical Malpractice/Health Care Liability
T|R has an outstanding professional track record in the legal and medical communities.
The Firm’s medical malpractice and professional liability team also made a significant impact on Texas jurisprudence. The Texas Supreme Court in West Oaks Hospital v. Williams, 371 S.W.3d 171 (Tex. 2012) changed Texas law by expanding protection for hospitals and other health care providers.
The Firm’s lawyers successfully represent health care providers, nursing homes, dentists, psychiatric care facilities, hospitals, physicians and other medical training institutions at trial, on appeal, and in administrative and regulatory disputes in cases with complex medical liability facts. The Firm’s attorneys aggressively defend clients in disputes involving malpractice claims focusing on high-risk specialty practices such as obstetrics, neonatology, cardiology, emergency medicine, psychiatry, oncology, anesthesiology and surgery; product liability lawsuits involving pharmaceuticals and medical devices; allegations of negligent hiring or credentialing, licensure, certification, survey and de-certification; suspension and termination proceedings; employment and labor disputes; medical staff, corporate contract and non-competition issues; and informed consent, unsterilized instruments and failure to diagnose.
