AAJ Pushes for Medical Device Safety Act

Congress Now reported that “a lobbyist aligned with the device industry said there’s too much work still to do on health care reform for Members to consider the device bill as a stand-alone measure in 2009.” Yet, “Sue Steinman, policy director for the American Association for Justice, held out hope the measure could pass this year and said she believes it has enough Democratic support to clear the House.” Congress Now added, “The AAJ, which represents trial attorneys and patient advocacy groups, argues the Supreme Court decision takes rights away from patients harmed by medical devices.”

The National Law Journal reports, “The bill has been a lightning rod in the legal community, with the American Tort Reform Association calling it little more than an economic stimulus for personal injury lawyers, and The American Association for Justice contending it would restore victims’ rights. Tuesday’s hearing before the House Energy and Commerce Subcomittee on Health was just as divided.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
