Our Approach: Low Volume, High Quality. We prioritize quality over quantity, unlike most law firms that operate like assembly lines.

Most law firms take on as many cases as possible, regardless of whether they have the time or resources to give each case the attention it deserves. This assembly-line approach often leads to delays, as lawyers juggle multiple cases at once, and deadlines get lost in the shuffle.

Glenn W. Cunningham is an experienced medical malpractice lawyer in San Antonio who is very selective about the cases we accept and typically handles fewer than 12 cases simultaneously. This allows us to focus our collective attention on just one case at a time. As a result, we can resolve claims in an average of 9 months or less.

Medical Malpractice

Frequently Asked Questions

What does it cost to hire a medical malpractice Lawyer?

Understanding the cost of legal representation is crucial. At our firm, we operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay if we secure a favorable outcome in your case. This allows you to pursue justice without an upfront financial burden.

What damages can I receive from a medical malpractice case?

In a medical malpractice case, you may be entitled to various forms of compensation, including economic damages for medical expenses and lost income and non-economic damages for pain and suffering, mental anguish, impairment, and disfigurement.

How much time do I have to file a medical malpractice case?

The statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases varies by state. In Texas, the general statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit is two years from the date of the incident. If you are unable to discover your injury within two years of the incident, then you have a “reasonable time” in which to file suit after discovery. Courts have held that 3-6 months is a “reasonable” time frame in which to file suit. In Texas, there is also a Statute of Repose, which states that all medical malpractice claims must be brought within ten years of the incident, regardless of whether the injury was discovered.

What are some types of medical malpractice claims in Texas?

Medical negligence can encompass a range of issues, including misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication errors, birth injuries, and failure to diagnose. Each case is unique, and understanding the specific nature of your claim is essential to building a solid case.

What evidence is needed to support a medical malpractice claim?

Supporting a medical malpractice claim requires gathering comprehensive medical records, expert opinions, and other relevant documentation to substantiate the negligence or malpractice that occurred. Our legal team can guide you through the process of collecting and presenting the necessary evidence.

How long does a medical malpractice case typically take to resolve?

The duration of a medical malpractice case can vary based on the complexity of the issues involved. However, our focused approach allows us to navigate the legal process efficiently, and we aim to resolve claims in an average of nine months or less.

What role does expert testimony play in a medical malpractice case?

Expert testimony is crucial in medical malpractice cases, as it helps establish the standard of care, identify deviations from that standard, and demonstrate the resulting harm. Our legal team collaborates with respected medical experts to strengthen your case.

What are the potential challenges in pursuing a medical malpractice claim?

Pursuing a medical malpractice claim can present challenges such as complex medical and legal intricacies, the need for a thorough investigation, and potential resistance from healthcare providers and their insurers. Rest assured, our experience and dedication enable us to address these challenges effectively.

How can I determine if I have a valid medical malpractice case?

Determining the validity of a medical malpractice case involves evaluating the circumstances of the alleged malpractice, the standard of care, and the resulting harm. Our legal team offers a complimentary case evaluation to assess the merits of your potential claim and provide informed guidance.

What should I look for in my legal representation for medical malpractice?

When seeking legal representation for medical malpractice, it's essential to consider the approach and focus of the law firm. Our practice prioritizes quality over quantity, setting ourselves apart from firms that operate with an assembly-line mentality. With a deliberate emphasis on low volume and high quality, Glenn W. Cunningham, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer in San Antonio, intentionally handles fewer than twelve cases simultaneously.
