How Long Do I Have to File A Medical Malpractice Claim?

In the state of Texas, a person who has experienced medical malpractice may generally have two years to bring the claim to court. However, many exceptions may apply. Some parties to a lawsuit may have different deadlines with which to provide appropriate notice of the claim, which can be as little as six months.

Generally, the statute begins running on the date the negligence occurred, which may or may not be the day of the injury. When the date of the negligence is not ascertainable, a further intensive analysis of the facts and law is required before concluding the appropriate start date for limitations. The deadline to file a claim can be incredibly complex. The statute of limitations can depend on a number of factors:

  • Who you are suing
  • The type of claim you have
  • External factors, such as applicable notice periods and the facts of the claim

Because the statute of limitation requires an examination of all of the above, and usually much more, it is important to contact an attorney familiar with medical malpractice to best advise you of any impending deadlines you may have in order to preserve your rights.

Am I A Victim of Medical Malpractice?

Generally, medical malpractice may occur if the care provided is below the standard of care and results in an injury to the patient. The standard of care may be described as the level and type of care that a reasonably prudent healthcare professional, with a similar background and in the same medical community, would have provided under the circumstances. However, it is important to know that a bad outcome is not always due to medical negligence.

The substandard care must be causally related to the injury. If the injury would have happened regardless of the substandard care there may not be enough to meet the legal standards in Texas. Texas requires that expert report(s) be provided upon filing suit to continue litigating medical malpractice claims. If an expert report is not obtained or is deemed deficient by the court, a patient’s case may be dismissed permanently. If you think that you have experienced medical malpractice, it is important to consult an attorney who is familiar with what is required to proceed with medical malpractice claims.

The Different Types of Damages Awarded

There are three main types of monetary awards that plaintiffs may receive if a medical malpractice lawsuit is ruled in their favor. Damages (monetary awards) are paid out based on economic, noneconomic damages and punitive damages. Economic damages are paid to reimburse a plaintiff for medical expenses, wages lost as a result of the malpractice, and other damages that may be readily assessed with an economic value, such as loss of household services.

Non-economic damages are awarded for pain, suffering, and mental anguish that resulted from the negligence. Punitive damages are funds awarded to punish the defendant and deter them from repeating the negligent behavior. It is important to note that Texas has numerous statutes that dictate caps on potential damages. As such, it’s important to consult with an experienced medical malpractice firm to determine what, if any, damages may be recoverable, and what limitations may apply.
