No one wants to imagine that their medical provider’s actions could cause them harm. When the unthinkable happens, get the legal guidance you need by contacting Brown, Christie & Green. Our Johnson County medical malpractice attorney understands the stress and pain of what you are going through.
Medical Malpractice Occurs Too Often
We seek medical attention from professionals we trust. Unfortunately, for more than half a million Americans this year, that trust will be misplaced.
It is estimated that more than 200,000 Americans die every year from complications due to medical negligence. Countless others survive, but are left devastating injuries and financial costs. The victims and their families will spend billions of dollars on treatment caused by healthcare negligence.
If this sounds like what you are going through, talk to a Johnson County medical malpractice attorney for help.
Why Contact Brown, Christie & Green

- Your first consultation is free with no obligation. An attorney will listen to your experience and give a professional opinion about whether you have a claim.
- If you proceed with our firm, we will not ask for attorneys’ fees, court costs, or any other fee until we secure a settlement or verdict for you.
- We will work tirelessly to investigate exactly what took place, why you are injured, and who is responsible.
- We will identify and name all at-fault parties to increase your financial award. These parties may include not only a physician, but also the hospital, device manufacturer, pharmacist, nurses, or any other at-fault party.
- We will demand payment for not only your medical bills, but also for any anticipated future costs and an amount to compensate for your pain and suffering.
Winning Medical Malpractice Claims
Though every case of negligence is unique, when you work with a Johnson County medical malpractice attorney at Brown, Christie & Green, you will have the benefit of decades of experience. This means that we are familiar with the hallmarks of a compelling medical malpractice case.
We work with clients whose cases involve:
- Negligence or a preventable mistake – If your medical provider failed to treat you within the standard of care, you probably suffered malpractice. The standard of care is the treatment you should expect to receive from any doctor based on your history and symptoms.
- “Never event” – There are certain universally condemned mistakes in the medical industry. These are called never events because they should never happen at all. Examples of never events include: medical errors, medication errors, bedsores, criminal assault while in a medical facility, or retained foreign bodies after surgery.
- Documented pain and suffering – It is crucially important for victims of medical malpractice to continue to seek medical treatment after their injury, even if it is a financial strain. Without a history of medical records, injuries and harm are very hard to prove.
- Timing – From the date of the negligent treatment, a clock starts ticking. The strongest claims begin very soon after treatment. There is only a certain length of time to file a medical malpractice claim, called the statute of limitations.

The Best and the Worst Hospitals in Johnson County
Not all hospitals provide the same level of care, and not all facilities excel in safety practices. In Johnson County, there is a disparity in safety grades as reported by the Leapfrog Group.
The Leapfrog Group is a nonprofit organization that publishes data on hospital safety. Their most recent Hospital Safety Grade report includes only three hospitals in Johnson County. The group publishes a letter grade for most hospitals rating how safe they are for patients. Here’s how hospitals in Johnson County compare.
The Best: Two local hospitals earned the highest grade, an “A”
- Texas Health Huguley Hospital
- Methodist Mansfield Medical Center
Where these facilities excel includes:
- Preventing infections in the blood or urinary tract
- Preventing postoperative surgical site infection
- Surgical safety including low rates of incision tearing, unintentional cuts, and retained foreign bodies
- Technological and communication protocols
- Low rates of bedsores
- Low rates of air embolisms
The Worst: Lagging behind two letter grades with a “C” is Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Cleburne.
Areas where this facility seems to struggle include:
- Preventing infections in the blood or urinary tract
- Preventing dangerous blood clots
- Proper hand washing procedures
- Too few trained nurses
- No physicians especially trained for the ICU
With such a wide disparity in Johnson County hospital safety ratings, one can only hope that the facility in Cleburne makes positive strides by the next time The Leapfrog Group publishes their report.
