Is there a medical malpractice | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Unfortunately, yes. The North Carolina state legislature passed a damage cap of $500,000 for “noneconomic damages”.  Noneconomic damages compensate a victim for “pain, suffering, emotional distress, loss of consortium, inconvenience, and any other non-pecuniary compensatory damages.”

It’s an unfair and illogical law that punishes victims. Nevertheless, it is the law of North Carolina.
