Filing Deadlines for Medical Malpractice Cases in Dallas
Timing is crucial when pursuing a medical malpractice case in Dallas. Texas law sets a strict time limit, generally two years from the date of the incident, to file a lawsuit. Missing this deadline could lead to dismissal of your case.
However, exceptions may apply based on specific circumstances. Our medical malpractice attorneys will assess your case and determine the applicable filing deadline, ensuring you take prompt action.
Pursuing Compensation for Your Losses
At Painter Law Firm, we firmly believe that you shouldn't bear the financial burden of someone else's negligence. We will fight to obtain fair and just compensation for various losses, including:
- Past and Present Healthcare Expenses: Covering medical treatments, hospitalizations, ambulance services, and other necessary care.
- Lost Income and Related Expenses: Seeking compensation for employment-related losses and any reduction in your earning capacity due to your injuries.
- Pain and Suffering: Advocating for compensation for the physical and emotional trauma you've endured.
- Various Injury-Related Expenses: Pursuing damages for loss of consortium, disability, scarring, funeral expenses, and property damage in relevant cases.
Understanding Comparative Fault in Texas Medical Malpractice Cases
In Texas, a modified comparative fault system means your recoverable compensation may be reduced if you're partially at fault for your injuries. Having skilled medical malpractice attorneys on your side is vital to countering undue blame.

I survived a horrible situation with a surgeon and called Painter Law Firm for help. Robert Painter, Linda, Julie, Catharine, Sharon, and everyone at the law firm were so nice and treated me like family. Mr. Painter didn't use big words, but explained things to me like a regular person. We went to mediation and got a good settlement for my case. It took a big weight off my shoulders. I'm grateful to them and the Lord for all of their help.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Painter Law Firm. I was a young mother of 2, needing legal help with my newly born son. I was new to it all, and he guided me through it all. He helped me and my family in the welfare of our son in so many ways. My family and I will forever be grateful to him. Not only is Mr. Painter a wonderful lawyer, he treats you like family, along with his amazing staff. I am so happy I found him. I recommend anyone needing legal help, to choose this firm. It was one of the best things our family have ever done.
Robert Painter of the Painter Law Firm was absolutely brilliant! My case became very complex but Mr. Painter strategized and executed the plan with precision and perfection to the point he was able to head off potential downfalls and we were prepared. He fought for me and the injustice of the situation with extreme passion. It was impressive to watch him quickly use case law to combat the defendants arguments and objections with his knowledge of the law. The entire office is professional and courteous. You will not go wrong using this law firm!! It is not often we need legal representation but when I do, I will call The Painter Law firm to ensure I will be treated with respect and know they are fighting for me.
Mr. Painter is extremely friendly and made time to listen to my story, although it was rather difficult for me to talk about. He was informative and realistic about my case, but more importantly, he was very honest. It breaks my heart that my husband will only see his daughters from Heaven but it puts my mind at rest knowing that justice was somewhat served.....and this could possibly save someone else's life from ending.
