I recommend that you contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney to discuss your potential case. Under Texas law, there are numerous hurdles that have to be overcome in each medical malpractice case. One of the major ones involves securing an expert witness to write a report concerning the standard of care, who violated the standard of care and how that caused harm. I have handled numerous infection cases that led to the death of a person. The attorney who you retain will end up obtaining all of the medical records, carefully studying them and then discussing the issues with you and an expert. At that point, you will know whether or not it will be possible to pursue your case.
Medical malpractice cases are complex and I believe that clients are best served by contacting an experienced medical malpractice attorney. After all, results matter!

I am sorry for your loss.
I suggest that you consult a Fort Worth plaintiffs' lawyer who is certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Medical malpractice is a sub-specialty of personal injury trial law. A link to the Board's website appears below.
