Chairman and CEO of Jackson Healthcare, Richard Jackson, has proposed a bill to the state legislatures in Georgia and Florida which would repeal the right to a jury trial for plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases. The proposed law would also create a state agency to review all medical malpractice claims.
Under Jackson’s proposal, these agencies would control compensation schedules for medical malpractice patients.
Jackson’s proposal seems aimed at limiting the large medical malpractice damages awards sometimes given out by sympathetic civil juries.
The proposal, however, has received little traction in either state, as small-government conservatives and plaintiff-friendly progressives are both opposed to it.
