Dangers of Medical Malpractice in Dallas Hospitals
Just like in many of the hospitals throughout the United States and Texas, medical facilities in Dallas are susceptible to the dangers of medical malpractice. At Aldous \ Walker, our Dallas medical malpractice lawyers are well aware of the dangers and risks that patients face when they undergo various procedures or testing at hospitals. Unfortunately, situations arise in which some patients are not properly diagnosed or errors occur during surgery.
Just last year, the family of a Fort Worth woman filed a lawsuit against Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital, accusing the medical facility, a doctor in the ER, and a neurologist of numerous errors. According to the case, the woman had a seizure in December of 2013 and was transported to Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital where a CT scan allegedly showed blood on the brain. The family states that doctors diagnosed the woman with a sinus infection and a migraine stemming from work-related stress. The doctors released her and gave her medicine.
Later that day, the woman had a second seizure, and then a third on the way to a different hospital. She was subsequently taken off life support after her husband learned she was brain-dead.
