Health Care Reform Trackers Criticize California Medical Malpractice Law

Medical Malpractice AttorneyJournalists are showing why a current health care reform initiative should not be similar to prior California efforts to limit payouts for medical injuries. Recent articles cite the state’s Medical Injury Compensation Reward Act (MICRA) as something that capped injury awards at $250,000. Consumer advocates contend that this kind of legislation makes it very difficult for potential plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases to find good legal representation and seek justice after suffering injury.

There’s also the argument that MICRA didn’t really do much to control health care costs. Analysis of the track record for this program criticized the small improvements in medical malpractice premiums, calling the positive effect “negligible” and showing that state hospitalization costs continued to rise over some of the period of effectiveness for the tort cap.

In general, many of those who follow medical malpractice from the consumer’s viewpoint are arguing that “pain and suffering” compensation isn’t just something intangible and therefore frivolous. They point to significant hardship for personal injury victims and say that they deserve additional compensation from insurance companies or other parties. These victims need the payouts that they seek in medical malpractice cases.
