eBook: An Overview for Texas Accident VictimsDOWNLOAD
Texas physicians are held to strict standards for keeping their patients safe through medical procedures regulated by the Texas Medical Board. When a doctor fails to provide an accepted standard of care as defined by these regulations, it may be considered medical malpractice.
Common examples of medical malpractice by a doctor, surgeon, nurse, or hospital can include:
- birth injuries,
- delayed or ineffective treatments,
- prescription drug errors,
- surgical errors,
- and more.

THE STANDARD OF CARE
Medical malpractice claims are often complex and can sometimes be difficult to prove. There are a number of factors that must be considered in these cases, such as:
- Did the medical provider meet the duty of care? All licensed doctors and healthcare professionals are employed to protect and treat patients with illnesses or injuries. They are responsible for providing your medical care to the best of their abilities at all times.
- Was there a breach of duty? If your doctor or hospital fails to provide you with the level of medical care and attention that’s required by the Texas Medical Board, it may be considered a breach of duty.
- Did the breach of duty lead to an injury? A breach of duty by a healthcare professional may cause you to suffer severe injuries or illness.
- Can the injury or illness be directly linked to the breach of duty? If your illness or injury can be directly linked to a breach of duty, you may have a case for medical malpractice.
