We pride ourselves in obtaining the best results possible for our seriously injured clients, and have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our many personal injury clients. We represent individuals whose loved ones were killed or catastrophically injured by:

  • Birth injuries: There are a wide range of birth injuries that can occur and impact the life of the baby and parents forever. Whether it is a cognitive impairment, neurological issue, musculoskeletal problem or something else, many of the issues that cause a birth injury start with a medical mistake. 
  • Surgical errors: Surgeons, doctors and nurses can make life-altering or life-ending mistakes in a surgery that the family now has to deal with. Even the smallest error in surgery can impact a patient for the rest of their life and this is not something he or she should have to pay for. Negligence and mistakes are not part of the accepted inherent risk of surgery and we will hold all parties accountable if this is your situation. 
  • Medication errors: Prescription medication errors happen all too frequently. Some common examples include prescribing unnecessary medications, administering incorrect dosages, and failing to check for medication interactions. If this has happened to you, doctors and pharmacists can be held accountable for the medical issues their errors have now caused you. 
  • Suicide in psychiatric care: The ultimate failure of psychiatric care occurs when a patient dies by suicide. All too often, suicides in hospitals and psychiatric facilities occur because the attending physician fails to do an adequate “suicide risk assessment” of the patient, and the nursing staff allows a suicidal patient access to the means (e.g., belt, shoelaces, torn bedsheet), the opportunity (e.g., inadequate level of observation/supervision), and the environment (e.g., bathroom or other private area) in which to die by suicide. Inpatient deaths by suicide are most always preventable – and the doctor and hospital can be held accountable for the patient’s wrongful death.
  • Failure to diagnose: Delayed diagnosis and failure to diagnose are mistakes made within the medical profession that cause a wide range of physical and financial hardships for patients. In these situations, patients typically suffer more, have to pay for more medication and treatment, and often have a shortened life expectancy. You can file a winning lawsuit with us to seek compensation if this is the situation you find yourself in.

Proving Medical Malpractice

In a medical malpractice case, the victim alleges their injury occurred as a result of carelessness or incompetence on the part of a doctor, hospital, or other health care provider. Medical malpractice cases typically require a particularly large amount of research and careful presentation of evidence to be successfully litigated. This is because a successful medical malpractice lawyer must prove:

  • A doctor, health care provider, or hospital had a duty to the patient;
  • The duty was violated because the doctor, health care provider, or hospital did not meet established standards of care; and
  • The doctor, health care provider, or hospital’s actions (or lack thereof) caused the patient’s harm.

Sometimes it is difficult to prove that all three of these medical malpractice elements are present in a medical malpractice case. This is one of the many reasons why it is so important that you have a skilled San Antonio medical malpractice attorney on your side.

Proving More Than Just An Injury

Due to tort reform laws passed in the early 2000s, filing, proving, and winning medical malpractice cases in Texas is more difficult now than ever before. In Texas, in addition to proving a medical provider negligently caused harm to the patient, we must also prove that the medical professional was more than 50% responsible for the patient’s damage. With over 30 years of experience and an army of the best experts used successfully in other cases, Glenn W. Cunningham will use the information he gathers to pursue the highest possible compensation on your behalf.
