A recent study by the American Medical Association (AMA) found that one-third of US physicians have had a claim filed against them during their careers. Claim frequency varied by age, specialty, and gender. For example, almost half of physicians 55 and older report having been sued, compared with 8 percent of physicians under 40. In the vast majority of claims, the plaintiffs do not prevail: 68 percent of closed claims in 2015 were dropped, dismissed, or withdrawn and 88 percent of the cases decided by a trial verdict were won by the defendants. California has a $250K cap on noneconomic damages for personal injury, wrongful death and/or both related to medical liability claims. The ACCMA continues to fight to protect MICRA, most recently in 2014 when California voters soundly rejected Proposition 46, which was intended to raise the cap to $1.1 million with automatic annual increases.
