The Office of the State Court Administrator (OSCA) has calculated the annual adjustment to the limitations on liability of state and local public bodies for personal injury, death, and property damage or destruction. See ORS 30.271(4), 30.272(4), and 30.273(3), as amended by
2019 SB 186
(effective March 27, 2019). Based on these calculations, the limitations are adjusted as shown in this table:
|state||single||injury or death||$ 2,247,000|
|state||multiple||injury or death||$ 4,494,000|
|local||single||injury or death||$ 749,000|
|local||multiple||injury or death||$ 1,498,000|
|state or local||single||property damage or destruction||$ 122,900|
|state or local||multiple||property damage or destruction|
These limitations became effective on July 1, 2019. They apply to all causes of action arising on or after July 1, 2019, and before July 1, 2020.
OSCA opened a public comment period on the adjustments from March 21, 2019, to 5:00 p.m. on May 17, 2019. We received no public comment.
