McAllen Medical Malpractice Attorney
Karam Law Firm holds negligent doctors, nurses and hospitals accountable
When we receive medical care, we expect that health-care professionals will help us get better. When they are negligent, people can be hurt. These professionals have lawyers on their side to protect their own interests. That’s why if you’ve been hurt due to medical malpractice, you need an experienced personal injury lawyer who can fight for you.
Physicians and other healthcare workers are expected to maintain the highest possible duty of care when treating patients. When they are negligent in maintaining these professional standards, they can become liable for any harm that they cause to their patients as a result. If you have reason to believe that you were unnecessarily harmed by a medical professional to whom you entrusted your care, Karam Law Firm can help you file a personal injury lawsuit.
Call Karam if you were injured during a medical procedure
We have helped many Texas families recover financial compensation following incidents of medical malpractice. We are a respected law firm that clients have found to be valuable partners in holding doctors, nurses, or other healthcare professionals accountable when patient rights were violated.
Medical malpractice can happen in many ways, including:
- During surgery or other invasive procedures
- When doctors misdiagnose illnesses
- When doctors prescribe the wrong medication to a patient
- When nurses fail to notice medication errors
- Failure to provide discharge instructions
Hospitals spend a lot of money to buy insurance policies for these types of situations. It is the duty of the insurance companies to act in good faith and honor claims when a person is harmed due to medical malpractice. It doesn’t always work out that way, however.
Insurance companies fight medical malpractice claims because they know there is a lot of money at stake. They may question the seriousness of your injuries or try to argue that they had nothing to do with malpractice. They may offer a settlement that falls far short of covering the damages you suffered, because that helps them save money.
Our job is to make sure insurance companies fulfill their responsibility to patients who were harmed as a result of malpractice. We investigate what happened to you. Our legal team seeks access to medical records and other evidence. We interview witnesses. We consult medical experts who can help us understand what went wrong.
