Amarillo Medical Malpractice Attorney, Jesse Quackenbush of Quackenbush Law Firm has already obtained a 2017 seven-figure settlement on behalf of a family whose loved one was killed by a medication error at a Texas hospital. According to Quackenbush, a hospital nurse negligently administered heparin and Eliquis simultaneously, causing a brain bleed and death. The hospital agreed to settle with the victim’s family without the need for prolonged litigation. Amarillo Medical Malpractice Attorney, Jesse Quackenbush fights medical malpractice cases every day, and he fights to win! Our clients routinely achieve million dollar settlements without protracted litigation.

For the last two decades, Texas medical malpractice victims have suffered from the effects of tort reform laws designed to eliminate their rights. The first laws passed set up stringent pre-suit notification rules which could eliminate a victim’s right to a jury trial by simply failing to send the negligent doctor, nurse or hospital “notice” of their errors by certified mail. Shortly after, the Texas Legislature passed laws requiring that very technical expert reports be provided to the negligent doctor, nurse or hospital. Again, failure to provide an expert report, even before meaningful discovery is allowed, will result in dismissal of even a valid lawsuit forever. More recently, Texas laws placed caps on non-economic damages of $250,000.00. Amarillo Medical Malpractice Attorney, Jesse Quackenbush at Quackenbush Law Firm knows how to beat the “rigged system” and obtain significant above-cap relief for his clients every single year. Don’t let the negligent hospital, doctor or nurse get away with their harmful conduct.

Amarillo Medical Malpractice Attorney, Jesse Quackenbush of Quackenbush Law Firm has learned from experience most of the tricks healthcare providers use to try to thwart medical malpractice claims. First, if you were injured in a hospital, the Risk Management Department will (almost always) send a representative to your bedside to apologize and offer to pay for any future medical care caused by their errors. Don’t fall for this clever trick. Accepting even minimal amounts of care could be considered a settlement and prevent future claims for other damages such as: pain & suffering; mental anguish; lost wages; disfigurement; occupational therapy; increased insurance costs; precluded insurance coverage; physical impairment; and psychological or rehabilitative care. A second trick involves wrongful deaths caused by a healthcare provider. The doctor or hospital administrator will attempt to talk you out of having an autopsy performed. Their favorite method is to convince loved ones that the Death Certificate will be enough to show the real cause of death. This is 100% wrong! Most Death Certificates are nothing more than a guess by a local JP and are not admissible as evidence in Texas. A third trick designed to persuade family members away from an autopsy is by telling the family it will cost them “thousands” of dollars. This, too, is false. If the treating doctor requests the autopsy, it costs the family absolutely nothing. Don’t Be Fooled! Without an autopsy, proving cause of death is nearly impossible. At Quackenbush Law Firm we customarily pay for the autopsy if it appears the case has merit.
