The article, “States with med-mal award caps see faster growth in awards than national average, study finds”, by Joe Carlson states
“States with laws capping non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases are seeing faster growth in jury awards than the national average, a new study says. Much of that growth stems from catastrophic injuries involving obstetric services.”
This is a good article for certified legal nurse consultants. It reviews the various states with med-mal award caps and how they compare to the national average.
The article also reviews how childhood malpractices carry a higher financial claim than others. This is quite obvious since their is an entire life before th child. These cases average around 1.4 million as compared to adult claims which total around 500,000.
