Important Information On Medical Malpractice

I want to alert you to an important issue coming up next week in the US Senate.

Each year, over a hundred thousand people are killed by preventable medical errors, due to negligence or wrongdoing. Many more are seriously or permanently injured, disfigured or disabled.

Congress has done little to address this serious problem. Instead, the Congressional leadership is working to pass legislation that would limit the right of those injured through no fault of their own to hold wrongdoers accountable and eliminate a key incentive for health care providers to act responsibly in the future.

For those who are injured or family members of those who have died as a result of medical negligence, the civil justice system is the last resort and the court room is the only place where they can seek justice against powerful interests on a level playing field.

Next week, as part of a so-called “Health Week,” the US Senate will vote on medical malpractice legislation which would dramatically restrict your ability to hold wrongdoers accountable.

Please help fight this attack on our rights.

At a time when so many people have been harmed due to preventable mistakes, Congress should be talking about protecting the health and safety of patients, rather than protecting the profits of negligent wrongdoers.

Please pass this information on to your family and friends and publish it on your own web site or blogs or all to see.
