Caps on Damages
The state of Georgia used to have a $350,000 cap on non-economic damages awarded in medical malpractice cases. That limit on damages would increase to $700,000 if there was more than one facility found liable.
However, the Georgia Supreme Court declared these damage caps to be unconstitutional in 2010, so they no longer apply. The section of the Georgia Code that formerly attempted to cap damages in medical malpractice cases is no longer included in this website.
