The Wisconsin Chapter of Caps on Medical Malpractice Recoveries, With a Back Up Fund

Caps on medical malpractice recoveries is one of the “tort reform” topics that’s been through notable change. A new chapter just took place in Wisconsin, with a win for those in favor of caps. The history and new chapter is summarized in a plaintiff friendly June 29, 2018 article at Daily Kos.  The Pop Tort picked up the article.

However, there is more to the story, including a Wisconsin back up fund that pays some economic costs. A June 27, 2018 Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article provides a broader view of the situation.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court web site has a landing page that includes links to briefs, oral agumment videos and the opinion in the case, which is Mayo.
