Medical MalPractice

Medical negligence can occur in a hospital, doctor’s office, nursing home, clinic, or stand alone surgical facility. Faulty medical equipment can also cause catastrophic injuries or death. If you or a loved on has been the victim of medical negligence or a faulty device, we can help.



For decades, CMZ has handled numerous medical malpractice cases in Texas and out of state. Very few personal injury attorneys will handle medical malpractice cases because they are extremely complex, time consuming, and expensive to pursue. And, damage caps limit the recoveries for the injured person. The laws in place are there to protect the health care providers, not the patients. So, it is important to use an attorney with experience navigating this very complex area of the law. At CMZ, we have represented people and families who have suffered catastrophic injuries and death due to poor nursing care in hospitals, doctors who prescribe the wrong medication or ignore serious symptoms, surgeons who make mistakes in the operating room, nursing home staff that ignores patients or fail to get needed medical help timely, and drug and device manufacturers that deceptively market dangerous and defective products. If you believe you or a loved one have been injured due to a medical error, please contact us for an evaluation. It won’t cost you anything to get the answers the medical professionals often won’t give.
