MEDICAL MALPRACTICE - TORT REFORM

There is much talk in politics addressing "tort reform" and "placing caps of noneconomic damages." What does all this mean? Some politicians, in an effort to garner support from the insurance industry and the healthcare industry, support legislation that limits or "caps" a party's recovery in the courtroom. In particular, there is a desire to limit the amount of money a jury can award for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship, etc. These harms that patients and their family suffer from are called noneconomic damages.
