The price of life
: It probably is true that we need to corral jury awards for pain and suffering so we can also corral costs of health insurance and care. But how much is enough? How much is too much? Look at the tragic stupidity of the doctors who gave this girl the wrong transplant — she is now brain dead — and ask whether $250k — the proposed limit — is enough for this family’s pain and suffering. Ask whether it is enough to compensate for killing a girl. Ask whether it is enough for the idiot doctors who did this to pay for their stupid and fatal carelessness. A limit, yes. But just $250k? Ha!
