Wrongful death lawsuit filed as lawmakers debate caps on damages from medical lawsuits

Nora Freeman Engstrom, who is a law professor at Stanford University, also said there’s no evidence in research data showing adding caps increased the supply of doctors in a state. She said it’s far-fetched somebody leaves an entire state because they might make a mistake one day in their lives.

“That’s a lot of things to go wrong,” Freeman Engstrom said. “And very few people make decisions in a real-world way based on that kind of really extenuating feeling.”
