Michigan Bills Recently Introduced Cause Debate Over Medical Malpractice Cases
The trauma of medical malpractice for a patient is indescribable. Not only is there a sense of trust being betrayed, but due to the often invasive aspects of surgery, medical treatment, and other aspects of hospital care or diagnosis screenings, any act of negligence on the part of a medical professional or facility has the capability of changing a person’s life forever. With that being said, four bills recently introduced in Michigan, Senate Bill 1115, Senate Bill 1116, Senate Bill 1117, and Senate Bill 1118, have raised debate over who would really benefit.
The main characteristic of medical malpractice that these bills would change is the limitation of non-economic damages, which includes the loss of household and other services. As Southfield personal injury lawyer Marc E. Lipton posited, “Who usually provides those household services?” As you may gather, Marc is suggesting that the bills would seem to do women a disservice in denying them compensation in the event that their lives are shaken by medical malpractice.
The bills would also significantly cap, or limit, the amount of damages a person could receive in a medical malpractice lawsuit. Since the bills would protect medical professionals from being sued if the alleged malpractice is believed to have been “the exercise of professional judgment”, other critics of the bills claim that they give doctors who have made catastrophic mistakes immunity.
