Republican State Rep. Eric Burlison is again seeking to restore caps on damages awarded in medical malpractice lawsuits. KSMU’s Scott Harvey reports.
The Springfield lawmaker has pre-filed a bill that would restore the $350,000 cap. A similar bill was passed by the Missouri House during the 2013 regular session but died in the Senate.
“Without these reasonable limits, patients in Missouri are gonna continue to pay higher medical bills just to cover the costs of these frivolous lawsuits,” Burlison said.
