AMA wants to change medical liability laws

Posted under Medical Malpractice

The American Medical Association has announced that it hopes to initiate changes on a legislative level to current medical liability laws at both federal and state levels. The AMA has challenged standing laws, saying the current liability system is preventing the medical world from providing complete and adequate service to patients.

Various states, for their part, will maintain and protect existing medical liability reforms in 2016. Many states have already enacted some kind of variation of a cap on non-economic damages, while six states capped total damages, with the caps differing significantly by exceptions, causes of action covered, and amount.
