Fighting for the Rights Medical Malpractice Victims Deserve
When you need medical attention, you have the right to be treated in accordance with the standard of care for your condition and medical history.

What to Expect When you Hire a San Angelo Medical Malpractice Attorney
The first step is the initial legal consultation with an attorney who will evaluate your experience and give a professional opinion about whether your experience is grounds for legal action. If you choose to pursue a claim, the first thing a medical malpractice attorney will do is start the process of gathering all the medical records and bills that pertain to your treatment.
Once gathered, the records should provide a complete and detailed picture of the trauma you suffered and suggest who may be at fault. Often in medical malpractice matters, there is more than one party at fault, and it is important to name all the at-fault parties in order to maximize your overall settlement or verdict.
Once this initial investigation is complete, it’s time to calculate the cost of the damages you suffered. This includes:
- Your medical bills
- Anticipate future medical bills
- Lost wages and any potential lost income
- Anticipated future costs such as medical devices, assisted living care or hospice care
- Pain and suffering

Common Misconceptions about Medical Malpractice
Despite the fact that medical malpractice attorneys help victims bridge the gap between their suffering a secure financial future, there is a lot of misinformation about the practice of medical malpractice law. At Brown, Christie & Green, we believe in justice and the value of community. There are some myths in popular opinion about lawyers like us, and we’d like to take the time to debunk those misconceptions.
Myth #1: The Courts are choked with medical malpractice cases
First, our judicial system exists specifically to arbitrate disputes between citizens when they cannot come to an agreement among themselves. That said, the majority of medical malpractice claims will never see the inside of a courtroom, but are settled in conference rooms or in attorneys’ offices.
What’s more, there are so many more instances of medical errors recorded than there are medical malpractice settlements or verdicts each year. There is certainly nothing close to every malpractice victim seeking justice for their injuries.
Myth #2: Medical malpractice lawsuits are frivolous
Consider the mother whose newborn baby’s arm is paralyzed from a brachial plexus injury. Next, consider the 85-year-old man who develops a football-sized bedsore in a nursing home. And finally, consider the father who loses his life when a surgical stapler misfires during surgery.
These are the types of cases medical malpractice attorneys handle on a daily basis. There are few people who would consider such examples to be frivolous.
Myth #3: Medical malpractice attorneys are “ambulance chasers” who only care about money
Medical malpractice laws exist to protect physicians and other medical professionals from baseless litigation, while also providing an avenue for victims to seek remedy under the law. There is a system in place to help the victims whose lives are derailed by a doctor’s inappropriate actions.
