"I highly recommend attorney Fred Willumsen. He is professional, thorough, forthright, and kind. He communicated well throughout the process, took the time to answer any question I had, told me just how things were, whether good news or bad. He advised well on decisions I needed to make, and his support team did a great job in helping to navigate and resolved my case with the best results possible. Thanks again, Fred!"– A.M.
I worked with Donal McRoberts and I can say without hesitation that he is one of the most caring and hardworking people I know. He helped me through the absolute worst time in my life. Not only with my case but he made sure I was getting the medical help I needed too. I could never thank him enough for all he did. He protected me the whole time, never letting myself or anyone else put me in a position that could hurt me (mentally). If you are looking for someone to be on your side whether it's be a quick case or a long haul Donal is who you need hands down.– Abby F.
I love this law firm Dominic went above and beyond for my case, everything went very well. I’m so thankful for all of the help they gave me.– Breanna S.

Understanding Medical Malpractice
When you are dealing with injuries and damages related to a medical incident you might be wondering whether or not this would qualify you for a case. Those who have never had to do this before often have a lot of questions about what they are legally entitled to or not. The easiest way for you to find out whether you have a case or not is to get on the phone and set up a free consultation with our Texas medical malpractice lawyers. That is going to be your sure-fire way of knowing whether you are entitled to damages based on the actions made by the medical care professional or not. Generally speaking, if you have experienced symptoms and side effects that have negatively impacted your life and you believe it was cause by wrong decisions made for you by your doctors, please reach out to us because you likely have a case. Here are some examples of medical malpractice.
If someone who is prescribed a medication for blood pressure went to the pharmacy and picked up something that should have been blood pressure medication, but they did not know that the pharmacist filled their prescription bottle with something that looks like their medication but was not the correct medication. Because of this mix-up, this person can experience having the issues of not getting the medication that they need as well as unwanted side effects from the incorrect medication. Any of the issues that they experience as a result of not getting the medication they need and being on a medication that they should not be on can and should be covered by a medical malpractice case.
Another instance of medical malpractice might be if a young woman goes into the emergency room complaining of lower abdominal pain and it gets treated as if she has gas pains but she is having an ectopic pregnancy and results in the woman’s death because she didn’t get the medical treatment she needed. In this scenario, those damages should be covered by a medical malpractice wrongful death case.
Medical malpractice cases can be broken down into the following types of categories:
- Missing a diagnosis
- Being diagnosed too late
- Errors in surgery
- Errors at the pharmacy
- Birth injuries
- Defective medical products
Those who have suffered any of these types of incidents are likely dealing with a lot of devastation and complications in their life that are presenting a lot of challenges for them. If this is something that you are going through, we want to be able to give you the justice that you deserve and our Texas medical malpractice lawyers will fight to make sure that justice is served.

In the state of Texas, you are going to be held to the statute of limitations. The term statute of limitations refers to the amount of time you are legally allowed between discovering your injuries and when you are allowed to file your medical malpractice claim. The statute of limitations in Texas for medical malpractice cases is two years.
Having two years to file a claim can seem like it’s a very long time to do so. We do not want you to think that because you have two years you should wait two years to speak with an attorney. That’s going to be detrimental to your case because everything is evidence-based, and you might end up with lost medical records if they get become aware that you may be a victim of medical malpractice. Evidence becomes more difficult to retrieve when there’s a chance of a lawsuit.
There can be complications with your case in which you didn’t realize until weeks or months after the actual incident of medical malpractice that you are indeed a victim. Going back to the example of someone on blood pressure medication getting the wrong pill; If that were to happen to you and you did not realize for a few months and then finally you do realize, you might worry that you have a shorter statute of limitation, however that’s not the case in Texas. You would be able to file the claim two years from the date that you discovered the issue.
When you are faced with an issue like medical malpractice, we hope that you never delay reaching out to our Texas medical malpractice lawyers. You deserve to have someone who is going to support you through your case every step of the way and someone who’s got all the information you need to handle this case successfully. The sooner you reach out to us the better off your case will be. You deserve someone fighting in your corner to make sure that the justice you receive it as full as it can possibly be.
How Medical Malpractice Cases Work
The beginning of your case is when you realize that you have been a victim of malpractice. Sometimes this happens right away and other times it takes quite some time for you to realize and discover that you are a victim of medical malpractice. If you had a surgery done and they left gauze in your body you might not notice that right away. They give you this discovery time so that you can file a claim after you realize that you are a victim of medical malpractice. This extends your deadline to file a claim. Medical malpractice is one of the only types of personal injury cases where you get those extension of statute of limitations.
As soon as you realize that you are likely a victim of medical malpractice, we need you to reach out to our Texas medical malpractice lawyers. Of course, that is going to be just as important as receiving the medical treatment that you need for whatever damages you’re facing. We understand that it’s very hard to return to the same scenario where you received these damages, but you need to address the harm that’s been done with a competent doctor. From there, we can set up a free consultation with you and begin fighting for your justice.
Something that’s extremely important for you to understand is that having a lawyer fighting by your side is going to increase the chances that you get the justice that you deserve. Medical malpractice cases can be extremely challenging and going at this alone is near impossible to have success. The insurance companies fight very hard to save themselves money and lower whatever compensation that they think you should be getting. It is always up to you to decide when this case ends, but we are more than willing to take a case all the way to trial if we have to. If trial means that you’re going to get the results that you deserve, we will always prepare the case as if it’s going to be a trial.
Of course, anyone can try to handle this case alone without the help of a lawyer but we strongly advise not to do this because you can get tossed around by the insurance company and possible end up with nothing in the end. You want someone who handles these types of cases on a daily basis. You already have so much to think about with your injuries and damages, adding the stress of a case can make things even more complicated. We want to make it easy for you for the entirety of your case so you can focus on healing.
