THOMAS & WAN, LLP

We have over 45 years of combined experience handling medical malpractice cases. Medical malpractice is the negligent treatment of a patient by a nurse, physician, hospital or other healthcare professional. Experience matters—you need attorneys who specialize in only doing one thing—holding hospitals and doctors accountable for their negligent actions.

Some examples of the medical negligence we handle: hospital and nursing errors, doctor misdiagnosis, cerebral palsy, hospital-acquired infections, wrongful death, brain damage, surgical errors, and communication errors. Signs that something has gone wrong can include but are not limited to: were you given the wrong medication, were your test results read incorrectly, was your surgery done incorrectly, was your baby limp, and not crying at delivery, did your baby go to the NICU. These are just a few examples of the many things that could potentially go wrong leading to medical malpractice.

We work diligently to get the medical records and hire qualified and experienced experts to determine if any hospital, doctor or nurse committed malpractice. Linda Thomas has dedicated her career to fighting for individuals to obtain the maximum amount of damages available under the law. Michelle Wan has worked exclusively representing clients in personal injury matters. Both Michelle and Linda are life members of the Multi-Million Advocates Forum and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum of The Top Trial Lawyers in America.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have a case?

The first step is for us to help you get a copy of all your medical records. Then we work with our team of expert doctors and nurses review the records to let us know if you have a case.

What kind of help can my family receive?

If we feel you have a case, we will have our team of experts determine how much money it will take to pay for the past medical bills and future quality medical care for you or your loved one for the rest of his or her life.

How much do you charge?

We work on a contingency basis. This means that you only pay a percentage for our services if we win a verdict or settlement for your family. If no recovery is made, you pay nothing.

Why should we hire you?

There are very few attorneys in Texas who specialize in medical malpractice, and those are the only kind of cases we do. Linda Thomas and Michelle Wan have over 45 years of combined experience in medical cases. If we take your case, we work on your case ourselves; we don’t “flip” it to another firm.
