Expectation Reducing for Modifications to California Medical Malpractice Awards Cap

On August 16, 2013, governmental leaders stated the possibilities of modifying the constraints of medical malpractice rewards were reducing. Compensation in California for physician negligence had been restricted to $250,000 since the 1975 Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA). NetZero trailblazer was focusing his endeavors to a ballot proposal, aiming to persuade individuals that a life was more valuable than $250,000—a so minute amount, attorneys frequently declined to accept these cases.

Ten years ago, MICRA restricted the amount Pack could acquire subsequent to taking legal action against the physicians he stated recklessly over-prescribed drugs to a woman who wound up driving intoxicated and hit and murdered his two children, Troy and Alana. The Pack ballot measure would demand drug and alcohol testing of physicians and instruct the medical profession to utilize a state database that monitors prescriptions. However, the key element was to increase the $250,000 medical malpractice ceiling to $1.1 million and permit it to regulate for inflation.

California Medical Association president Dr. Paul Phinney was an opponent for modifying MICRA. The pediatrician stated all that it would achieve was increase expenses. If Pack amassed sufficient names, the proposal would probably prompt a costly campaign. The medical institution, attorneys, and consumer groups all have bottomless pockets.



lorum ipsumlorum ipsum Say

In over 25 years of practice on the defense side of malpractice cases, Jeff Mitchell is the attorney I fear most. He takes very good cases. Jeff has the medicine and the applicable literature down cold. He is without a doubt the best cross-examiner I have ever seen. I have paid his clients a lot of money over the years.
