Medical bill issues affect victims of medical malpractice - Part I

A TIME Magazine cover story about medical bills has recently received a great deal of media attention. The American public is quite familiar with the fact that the cost of medical bills is causing even insured Americans to lose their financial footing. However, the TIME story makes clear that it is not just the bottom line medical costs that are harming Americans at nearly every income level but also the line by line costs.

Med mal case before the Supreme Court could affect awards

Last month, the United States Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could affect an untold number of Americans. The case before the court centers on a girl who is deaf, blind, mute and cannot walk, crawl or even sit without assistance. When the girl was being delivered, she became the victim of medical malpractice which resulted in her current physical state. She and her parents were subsequently awarded $2.8 million in a malpractice settlement.
