Lift Caps on Governments’ Liability for Injuries, Wrongful Deaths

Comments (0)
In his latest post to our personal injury law firm's Virginia Beach Injuryboard blog, my colleague Rick Shapiro takes state and local governments to task for enacting and upholding laws that place arbitrary statutory limits on the monetary damages they must pay to injury and wrongful death victims when the governments are at fault for an accident. Rick notes that such caps -- which exist in Indiana (IN), site of a 2011 state fair stage collapse that killed seven people, as well as Virginia (VA), North Carolina (NC), and South Carolina (SC) -- leave plaintiffs without the resources they need to fully recover. To read more, click over to "Capping Governments' Liability for Accidents Adds to Victims' Suffering."
