Proposed Legislation Targets Medical Malpractice Reform

Record #:
Two new bills before the North Carolina State Senate call for financial caps on pain and suffering awards. North Carolina has been cited by the American Medical Association as \"high risk\"--a label reserved for states where skyrocketing malpractice premiums are forcing doctors either to leave the state or cut back on services, leaving patients in some instances, without care. But relief may be on its way with these new bills that put a cap on non-economic damages on health-care liability claims.
