About Tommy Hastings
Tommy Hastings is a board certified personal injury lawyer in Houston focusing on lawsuits involving medical malpractice, dangerous pharmaceutical, and defective medical products. His tenacious representation, highly focused area of practice, and history of record setting verdicts have established him as one of the best medical injury lawyers in Houston.
Tommy founded the Hastings Law Firm, Medical Malpractice Lawyers in 2005 as a small, boutique firm of just a few attorneys who dedicate their practice to medical negligence cases. Since that time, the firm has won or settled numerous mutli-million dollar lawsuits and has expanded to include offices across Texas.
Born and raised in rural Missouri, Mr. Hastings was brought up on the principles of hard work and honesty. He has carried those principles with him throughout his education and career, graduating from the University of Missouri and then with honors from the University of Houston Law Center.
Tommy's legal career started on an impressive note when he obtained a multi-million dollar verdict just three months after passing his Texas BAR exam. And the accomplishments didn't stop there; Tommy later went on to be awarded one of the largest jury verdicts in Texas, an amount of $10.7 million against a rogue pill mill. This garnered national attention as one of the first such verdicts of its kind and highlighted the dangers of the opioid crisis in America.
Despite the fact that Texas medical malpractice cases are notoriously difficult to win, thanks partly to the tort reform laws that were passed in 2005, Tommy is one of the only attorneys in the state to exclusively handle medical negligence claims. Moreover, and as a testament to Tommy's dedication to this field of practice, he started his law firm after the laws were enacted.
His achievements aside, Mr. Hastings has remained grounded and focused on his clients. His firm is people-orientated and takes an individual interest in every client. He and his staff are ever-mindful to not view their clientele as “cases” to win, but as real people who have suffered adverse impacts on their lives and deserve justice.
