North Carolina doctors protest medical malpractice insurance

There was a group of more than 2,700 North Carolina doctors and health care providers that occupied the street outside the North Carolina Legislative Building protesting for a North Carolina medical malpractice cap. The doctors met challenges from representatives of the North Carolina Coalition for Patients’ Rights that attributed higher medical malpractice premiums to economic fluctuations opposed to the so called “out of control” medical malpractice awards and settlements as doctors claim. The Patients’ Rights group has the same view as Public Citizen consumer group that has made statements calling the medical malpractice “crisis” wrongly pinned on the legal profession.
