    The Impact of California’s MICRA on Patients

    As MICRA has existed for over thirty years, authorities could assess its efficiency in decreasing insurance rates and generally healthcare cost. It has been termed a standard for the country. Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nevada, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Wisconsin have all passed an alternative of California’s MICRA.

    Then again, some dispute over whether MICRA has been efficient exists. Medical journals have usually applauded MICRA for decreasing physicians’ insurance rates. On the other hand, a few law professors have disapproved of it as being slow or useless in really decreasing health expenses. In addition, there are a lot of accounts of children who have been, for instance, blinded by a physician’s negligence, where the lifelong pain and suffering is perhaps over $250,000. Florida, Georgia, Illinois, and Washington, each had an alternative of California’s MICRA, but these states’ courts have proclaimed the medical malpractice caps illegal.

    "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."
