In 1975, the California legislature limited the legal rights of patients and their families who are harmed or killed by medical negligence. Nearly 50 years later, that cap on compensation has never been adjusted for inflation. It is worth less than $50,000 today, and denies injured patients and their families justice. Californians can change this cap by voting for the Fairness For Injured Patients Act on the November 2022 ballot.
