Expert Evidence- Daubert Standard and Medical Liability: S.B. 311 (2014)
Incrementally raise the limit on noneconomic damages by $50,000 every
Incrementally raise the limit on noneconomic damages by $50,000 every four years until 2022. The current limit is $250,000, and under this legislation, for all causes of action accruing after July 1, 2022, the limit would be $350,000. This provision is in response to a 2012 Kansas Supreme Court opinion, which called for the state legislature to reexamine the limit and make the necessary monetary increases due to inflation and cost of living increases. The second piece of the bill would adopt the Daubert standard for expert testimony.
