Fighting for You

When You Need It Most

The right approach can make all the difference

Not every situation calls for the same approach and attitude. You need someone who knows when to be aggressive and when to be kind and caring. And is smart enough to know which approach to take in a given case.
Most of the time the old adage is true. "You can get more bees with honey than vinegar." Often disputes or other problems can be solved by courtesy and attempting to come to an acceptable agreement that benefits all parties concerned.
On the other hand, sometimes people are unwilling to move from their positions and do the right thing. These people do not respond to courtesy. But as most people, they do have a strong sense of self-interest. Shawn is willing and able to litigate and go to trial to protect you and your legal rights.

Medical Malpractice Known As Healthcare Liability In Texas, Can And Does Happen

In fact a medical mistake is the third most likely way you will die behind heart disease and cancer. Because of a push for "tort reform" in Texas the legislature changed many on the rules of pursuing a healthcare claim. Among these changes included adding a cap to non-monetary damages and requiring the filing of expert reports. Because of these changes and challenges many Texas attorneys will no longer take these cases. 
While these changes helped prevent the filing of frivilous suits it also closed the court house doors to thousands of injured Texans.
Shawn Simmons will sit down and discuss the facts of your malpractice case and explain the challenges of pursuing and winning such a case in Texas. If the decision is made to move forward Shawn will work to assure the best possible outcome for the given situation.
