Texas Personal Injury Attorney
Americans enjoy access to the highest quality health care in the world. Unfortunately, poor practices, overworked health care professionals, and low staff levels sometimes lead to treatment errors that result in serious injuries and even wrongful death.
A survey conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality found that 42 percent of Americans believe they have been affected, directly or indirectly, by a medical error, and 32 percent believe that the mistake has made a permanent impact on their health. In another survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 8 percent said that medical negligence had caused the death of a family member.

How Hartley Hampton, P.C., is different from many medical negligence law firms
Our firm's registered nurses consultants have extensive experience in clinical care, hospital administration, risk management, and academic medicine. She is a Certified Practitioner in Healthcare Quality and has served as director of a quality management program for the 1,500 physician staff of a large Texas hospital. Nurses work with first-rate medical experts to analyze the merits of each case and assists in the development of cases through trial.
Medical malpractice cases can be costly and complicated, often costing more than $100,000 to develop through trial. We work strictly on a contingent-fee basis and advance all of the investigation, case development, and court costs. Those expenses, plus our fee, are deducted from the ultimate recovery. If we are not successful, we absorb all costs and charge no fee.
