Lawsuits and Texas Medical Board investigations are an unfortunate consequence of practicing medicine. Assisting the healthcare provider in taking action to lower the risk of a lawsuit or a medical board investigation is one of the services our experienced lawyers offer. Whether in the formulation of policies, guidance with a difficult patient situation, or dealing with a crisis, we are prepared to step in early to provide the healthcare provider every advantage.
Our Health Law Liability practice offers the collective experience of attorneys who have defended hundreds of legally and medically complex cases and assisted many physicians who have received a worrisome inquiry from the Texas Medical Board. We have represented physicians from Houston´s two medical schools and major hospital institutions in our city. We have handled cases involving nearly every medical specialty and understand and develop complex causation issues, as well as standard of care defenses. While we prefer to get a case dismissed, we have taken dozens of medical cases to trial resulting in successful defense verdicts. We also represent hospitals, individual physicians and group practices faced with medical staff and peer review issues. We deal with commercial, employment and contract disputes arising from the business of providing healthcare. If it is a potential or existing problem in the business of healthcare, our experienced lawyers are prepared to provide the best solution from start to finish.
