Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Beaumont

Doctor, Nurse & Hospital Negligence in Southeast Texas

Due to tort reform in Texas, it has become very difficult for people to recover full compensation for their losses after being harmed by the negligence of hospitals, physicians, surgeons, and other healthcare providers. As a result, many personal injury law firms have begun turning away medical malpractice cases and people who need their help for purely selfish reasons.

At Clay Dugas and Associates, we continue to aggressively represent victims of medical malpractice. To put us on your side, call (409) 226-0990 or contact us online.

Our Beaumont medical malpractice lawyers know how important it is to help medical malpractice victims and their families. We have been taking on these complex matters for more than a quarter century. In fact, our firm has tried more medical malpractice cases in the courtrooms of Southeast Texas than any other firm during this time.

Our experience includes:

  • Birth injuries
  • Obstetric malpractice
  • Hospital negligence
  • Failure to diagnose (cancer, heart attacks, strokes, aneurisms, etc.)
  • Surgical error leading to complications or post-surgical infection
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Emergency room errors
  • Elder neglect and abuse
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect

    Our firm has a physician/surgeon on staff who understands the internal workings of the healthcare system. We have established working relationships with medical experts, and we have the resources required to take on the hospital and insurance company lawyers. While damages for pain and mental anguish in medical malpractice cases are now capped at $250,000, you can be sure that your attorney will fight hard to make sure you receive every penny that is available. You may also be entitled to reimbursement for lost wages, for out of pocket medical bills, and for loss of household services.

    Hospital Negligence & Malpractice

    Estimates based on available data indicate that over 100,000 deaths each year can be attributed to some form of hospital negligence. The fact of the matter is that most of these deaths are the direct result of understaffing or simple failures to communicate between staff. If you or a loved one have recently had a bad medical outcome, our firm will communicate very clearly to opposing counsel and to a jury, if necessary, the need for you to be compensated.

    Examples of hospital negligence cases we handle include:

    • Obstetric malpractice leading to birth injuries

    • Surgical error leading to complications or post-surgical infection
    • Pharmacy errors
    • Emergency room errors
    • Negligent long term acute care (LTAC) facilities

      Deviations from the standards of care are critical issues in hospital malpractice cases. With a physician, and a registered nurse/attorney on staff, our firm has a network of established relationships with medical experts to draw on and ample resources to help you. We can do more than just identify negligence quickly - we can prove it in court.
