Wisconsin Senate votes to expand malpractice claims

AP/Chicago Tribune, January 20, 2010

The Wisconsin Senate has approved a bill that would allow for more medical malpractice claims against healthcare providers. The bill allows parents to sue for pain and suffering damages if their adult-aged children die as a result of medical negligence. Adult-aged children could sue for damages when their parents are victims of malpractice under the bill. A coalition of groups representing doctors, providers, and insurance companies lobbied against the bill, which needs approval in the state Assembly to become law.
