Christa R. Haggai, Attorney-at-Law
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!

Each year in the United States, there are around 10,000 new reports of spinal cord injuries. Many of these injuries were preventable, and are the direct result of the actions of another person or company. When the actions of someone else cause injury to others, their actions are negligent. This negligence oftentimes results in injuries to the body that can cause paralysis, either partial or total. If the spinal cord injury involves the cervical section of the spine, quadriplegia can result, and the victim is left without the use of arms or legs. Paraplegia is also an outcome of spinal cord injury, and causes the lower half of the body to become paralyzed, generally as a result of damage or trauma to the thoracic region of the spin. Paralysis, in these instances, is usually permanent.
Back injuries and spinal cord injuries can negatively impact the injured person in many ways, and also have an impact on those who care for them. Most spinal cord injuries come with a huge price tag for medical bills, therapy, surgery, and other procedures that the injured spinal cord victim may require. A serious spinal cord injury can make it impossible for the victim to work, although he or she will still need money for their living expenses. The situation is often complicated even further by the need for loved ones to stop working so that they can care for the victim.
