Houston medical malpractice lawyers announce they will not accept COVID-19 lawsuits against doctors, hospitals or nursing homes.

Given the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we believe that, under the circumstances, assuming good-faith efforts to treat, that we can neither prove a breach of the standard of care nor causation.

To honor and support the heroes of the healthcare system in Texas, Houston medical malpractice lawyers have announced that they will not accept COVID-19 cases that seek to sue doctors, hospitals or nursing homes for their good-faith efforts in treating COVID-19 patients. Houston-based law firms Brown, Christie & Green and McGehee, Chang, Landgraf, Feiler have announced that they will not pursue coronavirus lawsuits in these circumstances.

In their coronavirus lawsuit announcement, Brown, Christie & Green managing partner, Charles Brown, says,

“Given the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we believe that, under the circumstances, assuming good-faith efforts to treat, that we can neither prove a breach of the standard of care nor causation. We do not believe that there is a true standard of care in light of the uniqueness of this situation.”

In a similar announcement, McGehee, Chang, Landgraf, Feiler says,

“We know that hospitals are doing their best to write new policies, try new protocols and manage the pandemic. As they develop responses, mistakes will be made. Some mistakes will hurt people. Some mistakes will look obvious in retrospect. This problem is unprecedented until we find a solution.”

While they will not accept these coronavirus lawsuit cases, these plaintiff’s law firms will continue to offer legal guidance and services to families impacted by healthcare negligence. Their attorneys handle cases involving medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, birth injuries, wrongful death, sepsis and VA claims.
