Your urgent help is needed. Recently, legislation has been introduced into the Michigan Senate that would grant legal and economic immunity to doctors, hospitals and their insurance companies. Hearings have been held. An additional hearing is expected on May 29, 2012. Time is critical- Senators plan to vote on these measures early next week.
If passed into law, negligent doctors would get a free pass and would not be accountable for their actions. Taxpayers would bear the burden of providing for those injured the worst because the right to bring a medical malpractice claim would effectively be destroyed. Many families would suffer devastating losses; all while doctors and insurance companies get richer and richer.
The Medical Malpractice Immunity Bills are SB 1110, 1115, 1116, 1117 and 1118. We urge you to help protect the citizens of Michigan by signing this petition and contacting the State Senators on the Insurance Committee by phone, letter or email. Tell them Michigan citizen’s strongly oppose these proposals. They are bad laws and dishonest. They have nothing to do with protecting patients.
