Professional Liability Task Force Report

RESOLVED,

  1. That the North Carolina Medical Society supports existing North Carolina law to ensure patients are fully compensated for economic damages and to cap non-economic damages in professional liability actions.
  2. That the North Carolina Medical Society supports legislation to require that plaintiffs accept periodic payments of judgments in professional liability cases so that resources will be available throughout the injured patient’s lifetime.
  3. That the North Carolina Medical Society supports legislation to limit attorney contingency fees in professional liability cases in order to ensure that injured parties receive adequate compensation and to eliminate excessive fees that serve as an incentive for the filing of frivolous cases.
