A new medical malpractice bill is being considered in North Carolina that many are saying will hinder an injured person's rights to obtain an adequate amount of money to pay for injuries and damages that they suffer.
The bill will put a cap on the damages that victims injured in medical malpractice incidents can receive. Critics of the bill, such as the AARP, are worried that this will create problems for victims, like the elderly, who do not have jobs to pay for any extraneous expenses, such as a attorneys to file a lawsuit against those who commit medical malpractice. Also, the bill will give workers in an emergency room immunity in the event that they cause injury or further injury to a patient.
The bill has not yet been passed and is being looked over in Congress. If you or someone you love has been the victim of medical malpractice, please contact the Kenosha medical malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874.
