The Mystery of Applying Caps
One would think that determining when statutory caps apply would be easy. After all, R.C. 2315.18 became effective in April of 2005. In large damage cases, attorneys and insurers must evaluate whether the caps are applicable. However, the determination as to whether caps apply is not always apparent, and case law on the subject is somewhat sparse. In fact, the majority of the cases interpreting the applicability of damages caps in Ohio have been decided by federal district courts.

Turning Back Time
Recently, I handled a case that involved a procedural issue that caught my attention because of a change in the Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure and a real world example of an existing provision in the Civil Rules. Now, I love what I do, and I have been doing it for a little while now, so when a matter gives me some pause, I just feel compelled to share my experience in hopes that by doing so I make your next experience more easily navigable.
