What is the potential liability in a medical malpractice case in Texas?
Texas does not limit the liability of medical malpractice defendants for the economic damages incurred by the plaintiff as a result of the defendant’s malpractice. However, the recoverable amount of noneconomic damages is limited to $250,000 per defendant unless the defendant is a health care institution in which case potential liability is raised to $500,000.
