Doctors, nurses, and hospital leaders tend to circle the wagons when something bad happens on their watch. Every once in a while, though, an honest, concerned healthcare provider speaks up and privately comes clean with details about what went wrong. It’s usually a doctor or nurse who whispers this important information and then suggests finding a lawyer.
Those folks have my respect because they put their jobs and professional relationships on the line by sharing damaging information that points to liability. That’s why, in my experience, it’s very rare that anyone will go public or testify about what they know and saw first-hand. That’s where the investigative know-how of a good Texas medical malpractice attorney is so helpful.
When a doctor or nurse suggests that you contact a lawyer, that should set off alarm bells in your head. My advice is not to call any lawyer, though. Look for a Texas attorney with significant and direct trial experience in handling medical malpractice cases.
