My husband died as a result of medical negligence. Does Texas have a cap on damages in wrongful death lawsuits as a result of medical malpractice?

Texas does have a settlement cap on how much a plaintiff may receive in damages as a result of medical negligence. This cap only applies in medical malpractice cases. Most claims do not have a cap on damages.

If you filed a lawsuit against a hospital or a physician, naming them as the responsible parties for a loved one’s death, there may be a limit on the amount of damages that can be awarded to you. In Texas non-economic damages will have a cap placed upon them. In addition, the number of defendants and claimants will have an effect the amount of damages awarded.
