The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) recently called on the U.S. Senate to reject the Protecting Access to Care Act of 2017 (H.R. 1215) and any similar legislation that seeks to thwart state-delegated powers to govern medical malpractice cases and to place a nationwide cap of $250,000 on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases.
ABOTA is an organization dedicated to preserving the civil jury trial and educating the public about the vital importance of the Seventh Amendment. Bruce Pfaff, Mike Gill, and Matt Ports are all members of the organization. Bruce is also a National Board Member and serves as treasurer of ABOTA’s Illinois Chapter.
Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd. wholeheartedly supports ABOTA’s resolution. We strive always in our daily work to protect the rights of victims of medical negligence and their families to seek fair compensation for their injuries.
