Good news in Florida! Hopefully, California voter will follow this lead!
Most doctors are good wonderful human beings who help and don't hurt. However, if you harm someone, you should be responsible for the full measure of the harm you cause. The $250 cap was put into place more than 38 years ago. Let's raise it to reflect the rate of inflation. Let's also say asking doctors to pee in a cup is not a bad thing! Good docs should not be afraid of this change!
"Trial lawyers and consumer groups are pushing a measure that would raise the cap on pain and suffering damages in medical malpractices cases from $250,000 to approximately $1.1 million. It would also require doctors to be drug tested and to check a statewide database when prescribing certain medications to clamp down on prescription drug abuse."
It is time for a change! Sometimes $250,000 for pain and suffering damages is not enough in light of the damage. Take a minute and watch this sort video - a story from a medical malpractice victim. Thanks!
A burn injury is among the most devastating types of injuries, and is oftentimes caused by the incompetence and negligence of someone else. At The Haggai Law Firm, serving Los Angeles and the surrounding area, we are experienced in personal injury law, including burns and it is our job to preserve the rights of burn victims and seek out compensation for their injuries and other damages.
Burns can be quite heinous personal injuries, and they can leave the victim with horrible, lifelong medical problems, scar tissue, and disfigurement. Burns can take years to heal. Recovering from a burn oftentimes requires expensive and painful medical procedures, like skin grafts, in order for the burn victim to realize some sense of normalcy again. The cost of treating a burn injury can easily run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. No matter the cost, treatment does not always restore the victim to their pre-injured state, as burns can cause severe neurological and nerve damage that cannot be reversed. If a burn is serious enough, it can be fatal. In these instances, the burn victim’s family is entitled to compensation.
Burn injury victims in Los Angeles need the help of the experienced lawyers at The Haggai Law Firm. We have won millions of dollars in compensation for our clients over the years, and we stand ready to fight for you or your loved one.
As soon as possible following the injury, it is important that the burn victim or their family contact a lawyer who is experienced in personal injury law.

The Haggai Law Firm can help root out the responsible party, whether a victim was burned at home, work, or elsewhere. We can help burn victims file a claim for compensation from the at-fault party, whether that means going up against an individual, business, or even a big corporation. We will fight to negotiate a monetary settlement for the burn injury victim that will cover the victim’s expenses, including:
