You Can Try and Ignore Fred Thompson, But Can You Ignore Tammy Travis?
During a Tennessee House Judiciary Subcommittee meeting yesterday, Tammy Travis testified about her 5-year-old daughter who was killed because of the negligent hiring practices of an area hospital. Tammy said her daughter’s routine tonsillectomy turned into a nightmare that no other parent should ever have to go through. Losses like the one Tammy Travis experienced would be severely affected by HB2008, the bill in the Governor’s Legislative Package that would cap damages on medical malpractice cases in Tennessee.

It doesn’t make any sense to take away the right to a jury decision on monetary awards in cases like Tammy Travis’. The ability to go to court in cases such as these is the only thing holding large corporations accountability for their dangerous irresponsibility and deception.
