Kentucky Lawmakers Mull More Changes To Medical Liability Laws
December 26, 2017
During the upcoming legislative session, lawmakers will focus on making changes to the state’s pension systems and passing a two-year state budget.
But legislators are also eyeing making more changes to laws governing how Kentuckians can sue doctors for malpractice — a year after passing a law that requires claims to be reviewed by a panel of doctors before they can head to court.
Sen. Ralph Alvarado, a Republican from Winchester, said he will propose a constitutional amendment that would allow the legislature to set caps on how much people can sue doctors for.
