Med Mal Reform Moves Forward in Hawaii

As Pacific Business News reports, House Bill 1784 is moving forward in the Hawaiian legislature:

HB 1784 limits noneconomic damages to $250,000 in medical malpractice claims against certain specialists who practice in areas such as emergency medicine, neurological surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedic surgery and general surgery.

It also caps at $3 million the award for gross negligence.
