How Could the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act Affect My Claim?
The Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) of 1975 limited the amount of compensation that a victim of medical malpractice may collect for so-called "non-economic damages" such as psychological damages and pain and suffering. In addition, MIRCA set a deadline, or a statute of limitations, for these types of claims.
