New York Med Mal Payouts Stable

An article in the Insurance Journal reports Data Show New York Malpractice Payouts Steady.
"The federal data show 2,000 to 2,400 malpractice payments in New York each of the past 15 years. Total payments were $515 million in 1993. Horner said after adjusting for inflation, the cost has held relatively stable."
This in light of consumer advocates pushing to extend statute of limitations. See previous post.
