For more than 35 years, Hampton & King has been one of Houston's most respected and recognized names for lawsuits involving mismanaged health conditions, anesthesia errors, birth injuries, hospital negligence, childbirth complications and numerous other life-changing issues. Our mission is to help individuals and families recover the compensation they deserve after a negligence-related accident or injury.
Our decades of experience provide us with the seasoned legal judgment you need when you have been injured as a result of medical malpractice. This means we have the ability to effectively advise you even when the law in your case may be unclear or still developing. As medical technology continues to accelerate, this experienced judgment becomes more and more important for the successful resolution of a medical malpractice injury case.
The lawyers at Hampton & King have more than 50 years of combined experience handling complicated medical malpractice and personal injury cases. They have a respected reputation within the Texas legal community as evidenced by the fact that attorney Hartley Hampton is board-certified in personal injury litigation by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and in civil litigation by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Mr. King is also a Fellow in the Texas Bar Foundation.
Our commitment to client-centered services also means helping our clients seek the medical attention they need. To that end, our professional staff at Hampton & King includes an in-house Registered Nurse who often serves an integral role in the development of our cases.
Clients also benefit from knowing exactly what we think of their cases. How do they know? Because we only get paid if we recover compensation for our clients. This approach also means we often invest our firm's own financial resources to investigate and prosecute our clients' cases.
Of course, not all of our clients must go to court. Our experienced team understands how to maximize your legal options. By helping you understand when trial does and does not best protect your rights, we make it possible for you to choose intelligently and confidently from your options in and out of court.
