Should a Woman Who Lost Four Limbs to Malpractice Collect More Than $750K for Her Suffering?

Wisconsin’s burgeoning $1.4 billion insurance fund for doctors and state-mandated caps on damages in malpractice cases will go on trial Thursday when the state Supreme Court wrestles with the question of whether a woman who lost all four limbs to malpractice should collect millions of dollars for pain and suffering. The narrow question before the seven justices is whether Ascaris Mayo, who at age 50 had all four limbs amputated as the result of medical malpractice, should receive the full $25.3 million that a Milwaukee County jury awarded her and her husband in 2014. The defendants, led by the state’s mammoth Injured Patients and Families Compensation Fund, argue the non-economic award should be limited to $750,000, the state-mandated cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
