Texas Supreme Court Rules in Hospital Injuries Case

The Texas Tribune reports that the Texas Supreme Court has ruled that injuries unrelated to medical error are still subject to Texas’ strict medical malpractice caps – continuing Texas’ reputation as one of the most anti-civil justice jurisdictions in the nation.

The case was filed by Irving Marks, who fell at Houston’s St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in 2000 while recovering from surgery. The suit claimed a broken hospital bed caused to Mark’s fall and therefore he should be entitled to sue the hospital for unlimited damages.
