Wisconsin Senate Passes Bill to Allow More People to Sue

Posted under 47c9f961-93a3-403a-9c73-0e2a7ec3aca9

A Senate bill that has just passed will allow more people to file medical malpractice lawsuits if it clears the House.

The bill allows adult children to file a lawsuit if their parent dies due to medical malpractice. It also allows the parents of an adult child to file a lawsuit if their children die due to medical malpractice. Currently, neither group  has legal standing and so cannot file a lawsuit if a relative dies due to medical malpractice.

The Democrat sponsor of the bill feels that everyone deserves their day in court while a Republican that is in opposition of the bill feels that the client pool should not be expanded when the budget is already running a deficit.
