There is a new dangerous bill in the House now, Bill 587. The purpose of this bill is to beat down the level of medical expenses an injured party can claim in an injury lawsuit. The bill is being advanced by an attorney who made his money representing insurance companies. The bill is aimed to limit medical expenses to what is the prevailing rate in the geographic area of the claim. However, the bill offers no guidance as to how to calculate said amount. This will put a tremendous burden on plaintiff attempting to collect their medical expenses. It will also stiff medical providers, who up to this point had to provide reasonable services that were medically necessary. If this bill passes it will open the floodgates of litigation and punish injured people and the doctors treating them all to the benefit of the insurance industry. Lower premiums? I think not. Bigger profits? I think so. Vote no!
