Medical Malpractice is the 3rd leading cause of death in America, after heart disease and cancer.
Insurance companies fund an organization called CAPP whose sole purpose is to ensure MICRA stays in place.
Attorneys rarely take medical negligence cases because of the MICRA cap and the uphill battle it creates.
In settlements, lawyers can routinely conceal evidence of the negligent act by requiring the victim to sign a gag clause.
MICRA was implemented in 1975 limiting an injured’s pain and suffering recovery to $250K.
Inflation was never taken into account, which would approximately be $1.3M today.
Insurance companies coordinate campaigns to ensure that MICRA stays in place and benefits them by hiding behind front groups.
