Negative personal effects from prescribed medication (non-error)
Medication errors while under professional medical care
For those that receive injuries or have loved ones that are victims of medical malpractice, it’s important that they receive the opportunity to have their case heard. A new law being introduced by Representative Bob Thorp seeks to reduce the number of medical malpractice suits coming through the court system, taking away these vital opportunities for many victims.
The proposed law would prevent lawyers from filing a personal injury claim unless they were certified by the State Supreme Court as a “medical malpractice” attorney. This is an effort by Representative Thorp to cut down on what he believes are increasing medical malpractice lawsuits. House Bill 2465 does not define the certifications to be considered a medical malpractice attorney, leaving the details up to the Arizona Supreme Court.
The bill would also require medical malpractice lawsuits to be heard only by judges who have also been through specialized training in medical negligence cases. There is no other similar requirement existing now or proposed by anyone regarding a particular type of lawsuit. Further, Representative Thorp provides no support that such lawsuits, in anyway, impact healthcare costs.
House Bill 2465 is seeking to curb the number of personal injury claims and other medical malpractice lawsuits heard by our courts by imposing unnecessary malpractice certifications on both attorneys and judges. If you have an opinion on this proposed legislation, please contact your representative and make your voice heard.
