Supreme Court Upholds Damage Caps!

The Missouri Supreme Court also issued its decision in the Velazquez v. Reeves case this afternoon.  This case was a challenge to the noneconomic damages caps that were enacted at MSMA’s request in 2015.  In a concise ruling, the Court determined that because the legislature had created a medical negligence statutory cause of action, the caps in medical malpractice cases did not violate Velazquez’s right to a trial by jury.
