Your loved one's stay in a Texas hospital may have been brief, but within days of returning to the nursing home, he or she began to complain of pain and discomfort. Before you knew it, the nursing home staff called an ambulance to take your parent back to the hospital, this time to fight to stay alive.
A car accident can change your life in an instant. In a matter of moments, you may find yourself with medical bills, catastrophic injuries and a significant amount of damage to your personal property. The consequences of such an accident go beyond your finances; they may impact your ability to work and support your family.
Texas is a state now known for tort reform. As part of this tort reform, several limits have been placed on the damages those injured by medical malpractice can receive. Most notably, with a law that took effect in 2003, damages for pain and suffering are now limited to $250,000 in most malpractice cases.
