Houston-area hospitals and clinics are recognized throughout the world for the advanced level of care and treatment they provide for their patients. People suffering from injuries or illnesses of all types come to Houston in hopes of getting the latest and most effective treatments for their conditions. For the most part, our hospitals meet or exceed the standard of care patients require during their visits and stays.
Unfortunately, mistakes can occur in even the best run hospitals, clinics and treatment facilities. When these mistakes occur due to negligence on the part of hospital staff, their effect on the patient can be devastating, even deadly. When a hospital patient becomes injured, ill or dies as a result of an error by a healthcare professional or hospital administrator, that patient or their surviving family has a right to seek compensation for the damages caused by the hospital’s error. A Houston hospital error attorney at Ricardo N. Gonzales & Associates can help.
