Tort Reform in Missouri

POSTED IN: Legislative Updates,

SB 200 establishes a better standard for the admissibility of expert testimony than our state courts presently apply.  It is now on the floor calendar. Also Wednesday morning in that same committee, MSMA offered testimony in favor of HB 95, which has already crossed the rotunda.  This is the collateral source bill that allows plaintiffs to offer evidence of the actual cost of healthcare rather than its value when computing civil damages.
