Proposed Law on Medical Malpractice and Nursing Home Abuse May Hurt Your Family

It’s already hard enough in many states to hold accountable those responsible for medical errors at nursing homes, clinics and hospitals. But a new bill now before the U.S. Congress will make it even harder, and in some cases impossible, for any American to pursue justice when injured by substandard health care.
