Sugar Land Medical Malpractice Attorney
The Leon Law Firm Helps Victims of Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice occurs when treatment by a healthcare provider is contrary to the acceptable standard of medical care, causing patient injury. When an expected result does not occur, or a mistake has been made, this does not mean there has been medical malpractice. For medical treatment to be considered negligent there needs to be a delay or a failure regarding: diagnosis, providing appropriate treatment, and the accurate performance of surgery or post-operative treatment. These actions go well beyond simple mistakes or errors.
We trust healthcare professionals with our lives each day. When they are negligent or reckless in the performance of their duties, then severe and life changing injuries, suffering, and wrongful death can result. The competent Sugar Land medical malpractice lawyers at The León Law Firm, P.C. have the experience and investigation skills you can rely on to determine if medical negligence has occurred in your case.

It is unfortunate that some of these medical malpractice claims are the result of a brief lapse in judgment or a split second of inattention by an overworked or overtired healthcare professional whose intentions are good. This does not negate the fact that you are entitled to and deserve compensation when negligence can be proven. We are always here for you to answer your questions to help relieve any stress or anxiety you may be feeling at this difficult time.
The State of Texas has set a statute of limitations in place that allows up to two years from the date of the accident to file a medical malpractice claim. For personal injury cases, it's important to file your claim sooner rather than later since there is evidence and documentation that can be helpful in your case. Witness statements and photographs from the scene of the accident can have an impact on your case and proving that your accident was caused by the neligent behavior of another person. In medical malpractice cases, it's important to speak with an attorney about the kind of documentation that may be necessary in your case to help fight for maximum compensation.
