Meryl Fischer started this petition to New York State Legislature.

Due to an anomaly in New York State's Wrongful Death Statute, it is legally better to kill people than to injure them.  The NY State bill to correct this inhumane law has been in Albany since 1994. In 2020, the bill number is S.4006 (Hoylman)-A.5612 (Weinstein)  Title:  "An act to amend the estates, powers, and trusts law, in relation to payment and distribution of damages in wrongful death actions".  Even though NY State's current wrongful death law is contrary to public policy, the government has FAILED TO ACT to deter negligent, reckless, sometimes criminal behavior that leads to needless deaths. The NY State Department of Health is protected by the NY State Attorney General.  I've been reporting white-collar crime since the year 2000, after I watched my father being assaulted, abused, and killed for his insurance and Medicare money.  My brother was victimized in the year 2017.  In New York State, our lives are worth our paychecks, so, there is NO Liability for the wrongful deaths of Children, Seniors, and Disabled American Citizens.  This bill would correct this harsh anomaly in New York State's current Wrongful Death Law.
