In many states, the laws concerning medical malpractice are favorable to the plaintiff. They allow for generous awards of monetary damages and make it relatively easy to pursue compensation for injuries caused by medical negligence. California is not one of these states. On the contrary, California is famous for its Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act, which imposes shorter statute of limitations for filing claims and allows settlements and verdicts to be paid out in periodic payment. It also limits the amount that can be recovered in noneconomic damages to $250,000, a figure that was set in 1975 and has not been adjusted for inflation.
