Medical Malpractice Lawyers in San Antonio

Fighting for Victims of Medical Negligence & Intentional Wrongdoing

Medical negligence or malpractice occurs when a physician or healthcare provider either fails to do something that should have been done or does something that should not have been done with a resulting injury or death. Doctors and other healthcare providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients. While a simple mistake is not enough to constitute negligence, a death or injury caused by the failure to meet minimum standards of care or the failure to diagnose an easily detectable illness may be malpractice.

The experienced San Antonio medical malpractice attorneys at The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery can help you fully understand your legal rights. Many of our attorneys are Board-Certified in Personal Injury by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and have earned AV Preeminent® Ratings from Martindale-Hubbell®. We have the knowledge, resources, and skill to help you navigate the legal process.

What Is Considered Medical Malpractice?

Negligence by a medical professional takes many forms, including an error in a diagnosis, treatment, or illness management. If such negligence results in injury to a patient, a case could arise against the doctor if his or her actions deviated from generally accepted standards of practice; against the hospital for improper care, such as problems with medications, sanitation or nursing care; or against local, state or federal agencies that operate hospital facilities.

A medical practitioner may also be legally liable if a patient does not give "informed consent" to a medical procedure that results in harm to the patient, even if the procedure is performed properly.

Our firm aggressively investigates and pursues claims for catastrophic injuries and death arising out of:

  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Birth trauma
  • Failure to diagnose cancer and other diseases
  • Inappropriate or negligently performed surgery
  • Disfigurement
  • Inappropriate or dangerous treatment practices
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Pharmaceutical injuries and prescription drug errors
  • Psychiatric/mental health malpractice or negligence.
  • Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) or nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy (NFD)

Our lawyers are experienced in determining whether or not malpractice has occurred where someone is injured as a result of the misconduct of individuals in the healthcare field. We serve clients throughout the state of Texas.
