US District Court Judge Carlton Reeves on Mississippi Damage Caps in Medical Malpractice

All grief is not equal. All pain cannot be reduced to a one-size-fits-all sum. One cannot
imagine what it is like to know that the doctor right in front of you, the one who is refusing to insert
a chest tube into your body even as nurses beg her to provide that treatment, is causing you to die
and killing your unborn baby as you are helpless to stop her. In Mississippi, though, one’s suffering
at the hands of a health care provider is worth no more than half a million dollars, no matter how
egregious, and no matter if your suffering leads to your death, your unborn child’s death, and leaves
your children orphans. This is offensive.
