Why Are Some Money Damages in Maryland Medical Malpractice Cases Limited By Law?

Posted by Frank Spector | Jun 06, 2012 | 0 Comments

There was a time way back when where juries were given the job of listening to the evidence and determining the appropriate amount for an injured person's physical and emotional effects of having medical malpractice committed upon them.  We think juries were doing a fine job.

But years ago, Maryland passed a law limiting the maximum amount of money damages for physical and emotional injuries (not medical bills, past/future medical care, lost wages-that will be a subject for a later blog).

This limit is known as the “cap.”

Most Marylanders don't even know such a limit exists. They learn it for the first time when talking to a lawyer.

The “cap” is a reality that needs to be dealt with in every case.   To discuss this issue or any other Maryland Medical Malpractice concern, call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT. You can also fill out the contact form on this page or on any page of our website.
