7 Things You Need to Know about §18.001 Affidavits - Part 1

Section 18.001 is a provision of the Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code which provides an alternative, and in theory cheaper, means by which a party, typically a plaintiff, can establish the reasonableness and necessity of past expenses in a claim for direct damages. In other words, Section 18.001 is a hearsay exception that allows a plaintiff to establish reasonableness and necessity of expenses by affidavit rather than by live expert testimony at trial.
