ILLINOIS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE FINANCIAL RECOVERY LIMITS UNCONSTITUTIONAL
Four years ago, the Illinois Legislature again passed down limits on the amount of money injured patients or their families in Medical Malpractice cases could be awarded by jurors for pain, suffering and other non-economic damages. The Legislature decided that no matter how seriously injured by a doctor or hospital a patient was they could only recover, per case, $500,000 against a doctor and $1 million against a hospital.
For anyone who has ever suffered serious injuries or had a family member suffer a wrongful death due to Medical Malpractice when a doctor or hospital failed to meet the Standard of Care, you know just how unfair those financial recovery caps were. A $500,000 limit was a slap on the wrist of a doctor and a slap in the face of the injured patient.
On February 4, 2010, for the third time, the Illinois Supreme Court agreed, said the limits violated the Illinois Constitutional and struck down those Medical Malpractice caps.
