State of Georgia Rules that Caps on Pain and Suffering Damages in Malpractice Cases are Unconstitutional

The highest court in the state of Georgia recently ruled that caps on noneconomic losses in medical malpractice cases are unconstitutional. Maryland has a cap on noneconomic damages. Noneconomic damages refers to pain and suffering. So, people who have the greatest pain and the greatest suffering are the individuals who are most denied fair and complete justice because they are entitled to the highest award for the pain and suffering they will frequently have for the rest of their lives. The highest court in Georgia found recently that this is fundamentally unfair. Every person, they declared, in all cases, is entitled to a jury determination of their damages. Let's send a message to our legislators in Maryland to remove the cap on damages.
