A Victory For The Citizens Of Illinois: The Illinois Supreme Court Rules That Medical Malpractice Damage Caps Are Unconstitutional

The Illinois Supreme Court struck down the state’s medical malpractice law today, saying it violates separation of powers by allowing lawmakers to interfere with a judge’s ability to reduce verdicts. All of us at Rapoport Law Offices believe that today the citizens of Illinois experienced a great victory. Our attorneys have been and always will be strong believers in a person’s right to a jury trial without arbitrary damages caps limiting their recovery.  This is the third time the Illinois Supreme Court has struck down attempts to cap damages in medical malpractice cases.  We truly hope the Court never has to rule upon such legislation again.
