Medical Malpractice Attorney in Austin
When you visit a medical professional, you trust them to help you get better, not worse. Sometimes, doctors make mistakes. A medical professional can prescribe the wrong medications, read your chart incorrectly, miss crucial drug interactions or otherwise fail at providing the care you were expecting. In a recent study by the Journal of Patient Safety it is estimated that over 400,000 deaths occur from preventable medical mistakes each year. These troubling findings make medical malpractice the third leading cause of death in our country.
Paul Colley Jr. helped one client get a $1.9 million settlement against a physician and hospital for neglect resulting in the infection of an IV site.
