Hidalgo County, Medical Malpractice
For almost 25 years Rush & Gransee, L.C. has represented victims and their families in medical malpractice cases in Hidalgo County and throughout Texas. Our main office is in downtown San Antonio, but we have had an office on McAllen for over 10 years. Our Hidalgo County medical malpractice lawyers have helped families that have faced the devastating effects of medical negligence – including botched surgeries, brain injuries and medical devices that have caused severe personal injury to patients. Our lead medical malpractice lawyer is Robert Rush. Mr. Rush has been listed in Texas Monthly Magazine as a Texas SuperLawyer, and by US News and World Report Best Lawyers and Best Law Firms. If you or a family member has suffered devastating loss due to careless medical treatment, we can help.
Last year, in a research study conducted at Johns Hopkins Medical School, researchers found that medical mistakes and errors were the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States. The study found that over 250,000 people are killed each year as a result of medical errors during hospital stays and through doctors and other healthcare providers treatment – and this list does not include those that have suffered catastrophic injuries, but lived through their treatments. There are many more who find themselves paralyzed, with permanent brain injuries, with scars, burns, and many other injuries suffered at the hands of careless providers that have failed to follow the expected level of care for a reasonable medical professional.
Not every bad result is due to medical malpractice. But when a physician or nurse (or any healthcare provider – hospital, surgeon, primary care provider, specialist) fails to treat their patient within the boundaries of a reasonable healthcare provider, and that failure causes injury or death, the healthcare provider is responsible for the harms caused. Unfortunately, Texas Lawmakers have placed caps on the recovery for patients that have been victimized. But at the Hidalgo County medical malpractice firm of Rush & Gransee, L.C., we seek to maximize all potential recoveries, and we work with experts in every field to provide evidence of the total losses caused by the malpractice. When those losses involve actual economic harms – like a lifetime of nursing care, medicines, follow-up treatments, modifications to the home environment, and the like – those damages are not capped and our medical malpractice attorneys will seek every dollar in harm caused by the negligence of the doctor, nurse or hospital.
Every case is unique, and results are not guaranteed, but our firm has collected millions of dollars for our clients – after paying attorney fees and expenses – to try to put their lives back together. If your family has been impacted by medical errors, call us and let us investigate your potential case.
