The Med-Mal Cap
As the Supreme Court of Virginia considers a challenge to the state’s $1 million cap on damages in medical malpractice cases, the med-mal marketplace has slowed considerably.

Medical Malpractice – Limitations – Test Results – Delayed Disclosure
Where plaintiff alleges defendant physician “concealed” test results showing kidney disease, so that his med-mal cause of action did not accrue until one year from September 1999, when the renal disease was diagnosed in end stage, the point of actionable injury is that point in the natural progression of the disease when it became irreversible…

Code § 8.01-20.1, and also grants plaintiff’s motion to stay her med-mal action against defendant doctor and hospital pending resolution of her administrative claim. Plaintiff moved to stay the…
Medical Malpractice – Nonsuit – Changed Allegations
Although plaintiff’s first med-mal suit, which she nonsuited, alleged that defendant hospital and physician failed to perform a variety of tests to determine whether plaintiff suffered from appendicitis, her refiled suit will not be dismissed because the allegations have changed to assert that defendant hospital is negligent for the acts or omissions of its employees,…
