Texas medical professionals are often responsible for the lives of many people and are held to a standard of care that has been accepted in the medical community. If they do not adhere to this standard, they may face a medical malpractice suit and could be found negligent because of their mistakes.
Texas doctors who perform surgeries negligently may have to surrender their medical licenses permanently. Medical malpractice charges can be filed against medical professionals who have acted negligently in performing their medical duties. A neurosurgeon recently did so after his state medical board conducted an intensive 18-month investigation regarding his high rate of repeat spinal surgeries.
