Krauss on â€œPain and Sufferingâ€ Damages
In his column on Forbes, Professor Michael Krauss discusses caps on “pain and suffering” damages. He writes, “A cap is better than no cap, and a general cap is more compatible with the Rule of Law than one limited to med-mal, I think – it is hard for me to see why a drunken driver who breaks my leg with his car should owe me more money than a drunken physician who breaks my leg with his forceps.”
