Medical Liability Medical Malpractice Attorney in Tyler
Hopefully, you will never need a medical malpractice lawyer to represent you. For the most part, we love our medical community here in East Texas. They are people and organizations with high ethical and moral fiber, and most of the time, they want to do right by you and your family. Especially here in Tyler – we all know that our hospital systems are some of the best around. Even though this feeling is mutual, we still need top medical malpractice representation to be available if, or when something goes horribly wrong.
If your trust in your doctor, hospital or health care provider have been violated, Blake Bailey knows how to take action. In fact, he is one of the few remaining lawyers in our area that will – the limitations on recovery are generally outweighed by the monumental costs of bringing an action to court. This dissuades the majority of attorneys from even looking at medical malpractice cases. This is due to the Texas legislature and Texas Supreme Court crippling the ability of those with legitimate claims from receiving a settlement that provides proper restitution.

Nursing Home & Elder Abuse
Taking care of the elderly is a big industry. Nursing Homes and health care providers are protected by the outrageous legislation protecting insurance companies, hospitals, and doctors who commit negligent acts. However, the rights of a nursing home patient can still be protected by a lawyer willing to fight the system.
The right of the elderly to rely upon the management and staff of a nursing home is worth defending. There should be no compromise in protecting the residents of nursing homes. The law was made to protect everyone, but especially those of us who are more vulnerable to mistreatment.
Doctors, nurses and other health care providers owe the same duty to be prudent. Bad outcomes do not necessarily equal bad medicine, but when it is proven that a health care provider violated the trust of a patient, they should be responsible for the damages. Unfortunately, the Texas legislature and Texas Supreme Court has crippled the ability of those with legitimate claims from receiving a recovery that will protect them from the harm that was done. Most trial lawyers won’t handle Medical Malpractice claims because of the expense in bringing an action, and the limitations on recovery. A few lawyers still review these claims as a matter of principal and refusal to dismiss the rights of an injured person.
Toxic Pollution & Disease
Companies that emit pollution in the air, water, or soil can cause serious injury and disease. Not only can workers be exposed to emissions at work, but neighbors can as well. The most vulnerable; pregnant women, children, and the elderly, have been sacrificed in the name of profit and production. The right to be free from toxic waste is one that should be guarded and only a handful of lawyers have fought for these rights. The federal government is sadly too underfunded and the task of fighting back usually falls on the families exposed to pollution. This requires a lawyer willing to undertake such a monumental task on a contingent fee basis.
Some companies add to their profits by using private and public land and waters rather than take responsibility for the costs of disposing of the wastes from their production. Landowners discover that under their land or in their streams lies storage for the worst pollutants the companies chose to let run free. Many of us become unwitting garbage collectors of wastes that will remain on or under our land for centuries. The law has remedies for these transgressions both for disease caused and desecration of the private and public lands we own.
