All We Do is
At Thomas & Wan, the ONLY cases we handle are medical malpractice cases. No car wrecks, no criminal cases, no divorce cases. Just medical malpractice. Would you hire an eye doctor to perform your heart surgery? Of course not. The same is true for lawyers—when you need a medical malpractice lawyer, you want a lawyer that specializes in medical malpractice cases. Medical negligence cases in Texas have specific laws and rules that other types of cases don’t have, and these laws and rules change often.
You need a law firm that knows medical malpractice law and does medical malpractice cases every single day. Linda Thomas and Michelle Wan do. We know the ins and outs of medical malpractice, hospital negligence, doctor and nurse negligence, and birth injury negligence.
