Because juries can be emotionally swayed to award large fines even though it might not be warranted. Same way We shouldnt allow Juries to give first time Burglars life in prison.I respectfully disagree 100 per cent.
If a hospital, doctor or surgeon screws up, than they should have have to pay.
Why should there be a limit?
Nothing in life is garaunteed, mistakes happen no need for doctors to be affraid in doing their jobs for fear of being economically destroyed, or forcing great doctors with stellar records to pay huge premiums for the mistakes of the few bad apples.I knew a four year child who went in for routine surgery, and the anestiosologist somehow screwed up, and you know what happened?
The kid ended up braindead.
I think there should.I'm sorry Oxy, but no I do not think there should be a limit on malpractice lawsuits.
Money wont change the facts.Your kid ends up braindead for life and all of a sudden you can only sue for 200,000, 300,00, 400,000 thousand?
If the doctor acted with disregard and carelessly then they should go to jail, awarding huge sums wont change anything.
