If you are in need of a medical malpractice attorney in North Texas or Arkansas, call Polewski & Associates at (972) 230-6200 for a free consultationThe state of Texas has placed a damage cap of $250,000 on noneconomic damages resulting from medical malpractice. No cap has been placed on economic damages. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed due to the negligence of a healthcare provider, Dallas medical malpractice attorney John Polewski is prepared to hold the responsible party accountable and take your case as far as necessary to see that you receive every penny you are due.

Economic damages include things like medical expenses, lost wages, adaptive technologies, home modifications, and any other fixed and provable expense related to your injury. Noneconomic damages include physical pain, emotional suffering, changes to quality of life, and other issues that do not necessarily produce financial complications. This does not, however, make them any less real.

While the court distinguishes between economic and noneconomic damages, it can be very difficult as a victim of medical malpractice to understand how one should be seen as more important than the other. Your body and rights have been violated by a negligent healthcare provider. This, certainly, should entitle you to significant compensation. Our medical malpractice team agrees and is here to fight tooth and nail to get you the justice you deserve.

Committed to getting our clients fair compensation, our attorneys are also dedicated to holding irresponsible medical professionals accountable to help ensure positive changes in the healthcare industry. If you have been injured due to medical malpractice in North Texas or Arkansas, please contact Polewski & Associates online or by calling our Dallas office at 972-230-6200 today to schedule a free and informative consultation.
