Assesses the impact of MICRA's limits on plaintiffs' awards and attorneys' fees on final judgments in medical malpractice cases A model for limits on trial awards and attorneys' fees in medical malpractice cases is the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA), a law enacted in California in 1975 in the hope of controlling soaring medical malpractice insurance premiums and ensuring the continuing availability of malpractice insurance.
