Deadline to File a Texas Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
You need to be proactive in when it comes to pursuing a medical malpractice claim. As a general rule, Texas law provides you two years to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. That may seem like a good deal of time, but the reality is the clock ticks fast in the aftermath of medical negligence.
Compensation in a McAllen Medical Malpractice Case

Texas Insurance Companies and McAllen Medical Malpractice Claims

Why You Need an Experienced McAllen Medical Malpractice Lawyer on Your Side
You may be like some people and believe you can save money by not hiring a lawyer to represent you in your medical malpractice case. You may believe that you can settle your claim on your own without spending part of a settlement on lawyer fees.

This definitely holds true in medical malpractice cases. In other words, if you retain an experienced McAllen medical malpractice lawyer today, you have a far better chance of resolving your claim for more money than would have been the case in the absence of legal representation.
