How much is your life worth?
That is a very difficult question to answer. If you are a multimillionaire, the answer may be somewhat obvious. But what if you are a stay at home mom, a teenager or retired? That is the questions Texas lawmakers answered when they passed TORT reform in 2003. $250,000. That's it.
According to Texas law, the maximum amount of compensation one can receive in a medical malpractice suit is $250,000. If the malpractice resulted in death, that's it. Although a person may be compensated for potential future earnings, if they had no current or future earnings, $250,000 is all they can get. That is the case for a teenager, a stay at home mom, or even a retired person.
In a recent article in Houstonia Magazine, the case of a Louisiana teenager is explained in detail and how the 2003 Texas TORT reform affected his rights.
