The Indiana Medical Malpractice Act's damages cap -- Time for a raise?

When the Indiana Medical Malpractice Act was enacted in 1975, one of its most notable features was the hard cap it placed on an injured patient's right to recovery. No matter how badly injured the patient was by the malpractice; no matter how much income the patient lost as a result of the malpractice; and no matter how many medical bills the patient incurred as a result of the malpractice, the most that the patient could recover as a result of the malpractice was $500,000.
