Medical Malpractice Noneconomic Damages Cap Ready to Become Law

Armond Marcarian

Once signed into law, the cap on the injury will increase from $250,000 to $350,000. Over the next 10 years, this cap will increase to $750,000. The cap on wrongful death cases will also increase to $500,000 and will grow to $1 million in 10 years.

The new law will revise and update California’s Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act of 1975, otherwise known as MICRA.

MICRA has long limited people suing for medical malpractice to $250,000 in noneconomic damages.

Revisions to MICRA have long been overdue. So many people injured as a result of medical malpractice have been under-compensated under the previous damages cap. Even with the new caps, it is still not full compensation compared to other types of personal injuries.
