0232 DEBORAH BATSON, EULA MAYE BATSON, AND BILLY M.
BATSON v. SOUTH LOUISIANA MEDICAL CENTER AND STATE
OF LOUISIANA, THROUGH THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND
HUMAN RESOURCES (Parish of Terrebone)
We find that
the MLSSA does not prohibit multiple statutory caps
for multiple acts of negligence which produce separate
and independent damages. Therefore, we reverse the
court of appeal's judgment on that issue and remand
this case to the court of appeal to review quantum
under each cap.
