Successful Medical Malpractice Cases
When you work with a Richardson medical malpractice attorney at Brown, Christie & Green, you have the benefit of a law firm with decades of experience. We know what it takes to win a medical malpractice claim:
- Evidence – In order to win a medical malpractice claim, you must prove that you were harmed due to medical negligence. The first step in proving your claim is gathering evidence. This includes medical records, witness statements, invoices and any communication between you and your healthcare team.
- Expert Testimony – We know that one of the best ways to prove that you received substandard care is to hire experts. Medical experts testify and give an opinion about whether your healthcare provider violated the standards of care.
- Timing – In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice claim is two years from the date of injury. Once that time runs out, you may lose the chance to file a lawsuit. The strongest medical malpractice claims begin as soon as possible after an injury.

Information about Medication Errors
Medication errors are one of the more common causes of medical malpractice claims. National data regarding adverse drug events (ADEs) is alarming. About half of the American population continually uses, or has used, a prescription medication in the last 30 days. The sheer prevalence of prescription drug use in the population creates many opportunities for ADEs, poor communication among doctors and certainly serious consequences for patients.
When do medication errors happen?
ADEs account for more than three million physician office visits, one million emergency room visits and more than 100,000 hospital admissions every year.
Where do Americans suffer medication errors?
Emergency rooms are the third most common source of medication errors. The hustle and bustle of an emergency department coupled with a brand new doctor-patient relationship creates the perfect scenario for prescription drug mistakes.
Who is most likely to be affected by medication errors?
Vulnerable populations are more likely to suffer medication errors and to have more severe adverse outcomes because of them. Vulnerable populations in this instance include:
- The elderly
- Those with limited access to healthcare services
- Patients with low health literacy
- Those of disadvantaged socioeconomic status
- Patients with language barriers
Regardless of risk factors, medication errors are never events. They are mistakes that are so egregiously careless that the medical community agrees they should never happen at all.
