Connecticut medical malpractice compromise yet to be reached

The end of the regular Legislative session is June 4 but there has yet to be a Connecticut medical malpractice compromise reached on what a Rep. Called “the second most important facing the Legislature after the budget”. Doctors in Connecticut held rallies the previous week pushing for a $250,000 cap on pan and suffering in noneconomic Connecticut medical malpractice losses.

The Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association president Kathleen Nasri believes that capping Connecticut medical malpractice awards is “punishment on the victims”. Nastri thinks that the doctors have been misled by insurers and are now stuck on the idea of Connecticut medical malpractice caps as a solution to the real problem of dropping investment income causing the rising insurance rates. Trial lawyers are pushing instead for insurance company reform and more state oversight of the industry.
