Bill Passed Limiting Medical Malpractice Liability

As of April 20, 2011, a statement, writing, or action by a health care professional to an individual, or an individual’s family, that expresses sympathetic feelings towards that individual’s pain or death cannot be used against the professional in an action for medical malpractice. However, this bill does not apply to additional statements of fault or other culpable conduct. Click here to view the full version of the Act.
