Pennsylvania House Passes Medical Malpractice Caps
A measure designed to lower climbing Pennsylvania medical malpractice insurance rates for doctors passed 199 votes to 76. The measure, sponsored by state representative Mike Turzai, is a proposed amendment to the Pennsylvania state constitution that would allow legislators to place caps on non-economic damages in all civil liability cases, including medical malpractice. Opponents of the measure claim that it will prevent proper compensation for damages to the victims in a variety of cases. The measure must pass two consecutive two-year legislative sessions prior to appearing on a statewide referendum ballot before it can become a constitutional amendment.
