Medical Malpractice Insurance & Health Insurers

Personal injury lawyers in Wisconsin and elsewhere have long known that caps on damages do not stop insurance companies from increasing premiums. In addition to those authorities referred to below, a recent Insurance Journal study proves this with respect to medical malpractice. Where damage caps limiting a person's right to recovery existed, insurance premiums still went up "even though insurers enjoyed a slowdown in their payouts." So why do we have such caps in Wisconsin?
