I am not licensed in TX and can only offer you general advice. I would contact a medical malpractice lawyer as well as a lawyer who files civil rights actions under a Federal Statute. Your medical negligence claim may depend in large part on who employs the healthcare providers. They may be employed by the county which would make them sovereigns and some degree of immunity may apply. However, many states hire independent medical companies to provide services to inmates. A local lawyer will know what your state does.
In addition, you may have a claim for deprivation of your civil rights even if you cannot, for some reason bring a medical negligence claim. Call a local lawyer
You need to speak with a Texas medical malpractice attorney with experience suing government entities for medical malpractice.
You can sue for comepnsation for: medical bills, future medical care, lost wages, pain, disfigurement, impairment, and mental stress.
All medical records will need to be reviewed by a M.D. to see if there is malpractice.
The attorney you need should be experienced in handling both medical malpratice and governmental liability under the Texas Tort Claims Act. These cases are difficult, so you need an attorney experienced in both these areas.
Hope this information is helpful.
