We must be alert that the insurance and pharmaceutical industries do not further limit the rights of victims of medical errors to recover fair compensation. No one knows who will be the victim of medical malpractice but the insurance companies know they will be paying the verdicts. Consequently, the insurance and pharmaceutical industries will be organized in their efforts to shift the burden of medical errors to the victims. We all need to make sure that future victims of medical errors are not twice victimized.
