Here is a very interesting video that discusses the Atlanta Oculoplastic Surgery v. Nestlehutt case about to be decided by the Georgia Supreme Court, which challenges the current Georgia cap on medical malpractice at $350,000 as unconstitutional.
This case illustrates the incredible injustice of limiting patients who are victimized or killed by medical malpractice of a fair and full recovery to pay for their injuries or death due to medical negligence.
Hopefully the Georgia Supreme Court will decide in favor of patients rather than the giant propaganda machine put out by the insurance companies concerning medical malpractice--a deceptive agenda that pushes profits over human lives.
Limiting caps on valid medical malpractice claims, where patients have been severely killed or injured due to medical negligence is both a gross injustice and patently unconstitutional. The 14th Amendment of our United States Constitution states: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law."
We hope and pray for a good outcome for Mrs. Nestlehutt and all the other present and future Georgians who are victims of serious injury or death due to medical negligence.
