Neurologic Injury-Cases

2003 Berner v. Mills, 265 Va. 408, 579 S.E.2d 159.

Defendant, professional corporation, asserted that this medical negligence claim was governed by the Virginia Birth Related Neurological Injury Compensation Act even though the physician’s professional corporation was not expressly governed by the statute. A subsequent amendment included the professional corporation within the statute and the issue is whether or not that statutory amendment is retroactive. The court concluded that it was not applying general principles of statutory construction, i.e., unless the statute expressly says that it is retroactive then, it is deemed to be prospective.

Virginia Birth Related Neurological Injury Compensation Act is not applicable to professional corporations.
