The Missouri House gave initial approval Wednesday to a bill to reinstate limits on how much juries can award in non-economic damages in medical-malpractice cases against health-care providers. The bill caps non-economic damages, including pain and suffering, at $350,000. The cap would not limit economic damages such as lost wages or medical bills resulting from the wrongdoing. Supporters said the limits, approved 101-53, are needed to make sure doctors do not leave the state because of increasing insurance costs. The state previously had caps that were overturned by the state Supreme Court in 2012.
