Plaintiff attorneys were just avoiding complex med-mal cases in KS because of the caps. Is it really worth a measly 40% of $500k to take on a contingency case? Since these cases don't go to trial and involve minimal discovery and several settlement conferences - it's telling that $300k isn't enough $$$ for minimal work. They want the big paychecks. They want Jackson County, MO $$$. Never mind that these costs are passed along to the consumer and everyone else pays for it...

Just about everyone dislikes lawyers, until....theirs wins against one! You thought I was going to say....until you need one. said...

1.First, select a good lawyer.

2.The only good attorney is a winning attorney.

^See. I didn't say anything about shooting anyone. And, didn't denigrate jurists.
