Texas shocked many more liberal states when in 2003 they passed sweeping, constitutional tort reform for malpractice cases turning one of the worst legal climates in the country into one of the best.

Texas has a fairly strong statute forcing claims to be brought within two years of injury. The current law states that minors have until their twelfth birthday to bring suit but prior case law leads most practitioners to believe the state will allow claims to be filed until a minor’s eighteenth birthday. Texas only allows health care providers to be held liable for their portion of the verdict or settlement over a negligent event.
