McIver Brown Concludes Banner 2011 Year
FOR IMMEDIATE PUBLICATION
HOUSTON – On December 31, 2011, McIver Brown will celebrate the end of an extraordinarily successful year. The firm was able to obtain a verdict, recovery, or settlement in every case it concluded during the year. “To have a year without a single loss in a medical malpractice case is always good, but to continue the streak from inception for another year is especially rewarding.” said McIver Brown Partner, Rich McIver.
“The Texas Legislature and the Texas Governor have made every effort to aid the big insurance companies in destroying patients’ rights. Despite the rules being stacked in their favor, we have managed a successful recovery for every single medical malpractice client this year.” said Charles Brown, McIver Brown Partner.
Under the guise of “tort reform”, Texas has created a number of procedural hurdles and monetary caps that make the prosecution of medical malpractice cases more difficult as well as more costly than other types of cases. This has prompted most attorneys to flee this particular area of law. McIver Brown bucked the trend and succeeded where other lawyers feared to tread.
“There is a feeling of pride in being able to help so many Americans,” said Mr. McIver. “I am personally able to sleep better at night knowing that I have helped many people who would never have been able to find counsel without the dedicated work of our attorneys and staff.”
“At the heart of our firm is a belief that when doctors, nursing homes, or hospitals violate clear patient-safety rules and hurt others, that they should be required to pay restitution. It is not only for the injured families, it is for the protection of every one who seeks medical care. If they have to pay every time they break a rule, eventually they will stop breaking them and stop hurting people,” said Mr. Brown.
In 2011, McIver Brown successfully completed two trials and entered into a firm-record number of confidential settlements. “While we cannot disclose the amounts of the settlements because of confidentiality agreements, I can say that it was a very good year for the firm’s clients,” said Mr. McIver.
