Louisiana medical malpractice cap increase rejected

A lawmaker has tried to get the cap on pain and suffering awards in Louisiana medical malpractices cases raised but was unsuccessful. The current cap of $500,000 should be adjusted for inflation according to Rep Willie Hunter to $1.7 million. Critics of medical malpractice caps believe that it is a scapegoat solution for doctors that will not fix the actual problem of increasing insurance rates due to a downturn in the stock market and other investment instruments.
