Texas medical malpractice claims are very hard to pursue now days because of "tort reforms" passed in 2003. A Texas plaintiff must be able to prove (1) a dramatic error occurred; (2) serious injury or death; and (3) a direct cause-and-effect link between the error and the injury. In cases involving misdiagnoses of mental conditions, the hard part is usually establishing enough financial loss to justify a claim. See, Texas laws cap damages relating to mental anguish, pain, and other non-economic damages. Those types of damage categories are greatly minimized under the tort reform scheme.
