FAMILIES AND SEVERELY INJURED VICTIMS OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE TRAVEL TO WASHINGTON TO FIGHT LIMITS ON PATIENTS’ LEGAL RIGHTS

Victims and families from nine states, including men, women and children catastrophically injured due to medical malpractice, will travel to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday October 21 to ask Congress to ensure that the much-needed health care bill does not strip injured patients of their legal rights, and that more is done to advance patient safety.

Their visit is hosted by eight national consumer organizations: Alliance for Justice, Center for Justice & Democracy, Consumer Watchdog, National Consumers League, National Women’s Health Network, NCCNHR: The National Consumer Voice for Quality Long-Term Care, Public Citizen and USAction. As part of the health care bill, some in Congress have been pressing to limit the legal rights of patients injured by grossly negligent medical care.

Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-MI) and Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) are also scheduled to attend.

WHAT: Press conference and availability with medical malpractice victims from Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Nebraska, Oregon, and Virginia

WHEN: 11:00 am EDT, Oct. 21, 2009.

WHERE: House Press Triangle
Washington, DC 20515
