Efforts in Missouri to restore caps on non-economic damages in medical malpractice lawsuits are in limbo.
The Missouri House has passed legislation that would restore caps on damages in medical malpractice lawsuits.
The law that put the caps in place was tossed out last year by the Missouri Supreme Court. State Representative Mike Colona (D, St. Louis) spoke against restoring medical malpractice damage caps during floor debate.
