Measure to Raise Medical Malpractice Liability Limit In Virginia Fails

Comments (0)
The Richmond-Times Dispatch reports that half the bills put before the Virginia General Assembly this year have failed, including a bill raising the medical malpractice liability limit across the state of VA.

The bill was brought forth by
Senator Henry Marsh III, a Democrat from Richmond, VA. The bill failed in part because it was not supported by the Medical Society of Virginia. The measure failed by a 15-0 vote in the Courts of Justice Committee, which is headed by Henry Marsh himself.

Presently, the
medical malpractice liability cap in Virginia is $2 million. The limit on punitive damages is $350,000.

If you have been the victim of
medical malpractice in the state of Virginia, it is vital that you contact an experienced, knowledgeable medical malpractice attorney. Find you if you deserve compensation for the surgical error, misdiagnosis, or other medical malpractice incident that has affected your life.
