Doctors from all over Missouri will rally in their white coats in Jefferson City on Wednesday to urge legislators to rein in lawsuits in an attempt to control medical liability insurance premiums.
Doctors will take the day to travel to the state capitol hoping lawmakers will undertake tort reform and limit non-economic damages to $350,000.
The Show Me Tort Reform Coalition is supporting legislation that would restore the state's cap on damages that could be awarded for such things as loss of enjoyment and pain and suffering.
The cap was lifted by a deeply-divided Supreme Court in 2012. The White Coat Rally Day will begin at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow in the rotunda of the first floor of the Missouri Capitol.
