The Louisiana Supreme Court has upheld the state's $500,000 limit on total medical liability damages. The court also ruled that the cap covers all health professionals, including nurses and nurse practitioners, in addition to doctors. Under the law, doctors who contribute to the state's Patients' Compensation Fund are responsible for the first $100,000 of a liability judgment. The remaining $400,000 is covered by the fund.
