Rep. Speier Introduces Bipartisan Bill to Restore Military Servicemembers’ Rights to Sue for Medical Malpractice

Rep. Speier Introduces Bipartisan Bill to Restore Military Servicemembers’ Rights to Sue for Medical Malpractice | Veterans Affairs and Veterans News from HadIt.com | Scoop.it

Speier, Chair of the House Armed Services Military Personnel Subcommittee. “It denies servicemembers who put their lives on the line for this country the same access to the justice system enjoyed by servicemembers’ spouses, other federal employees, and even prisoners. Creating an exemption for medical malpractice is long overdue. I’m thrilled to have a bipartisan group of colleagues join me in addressing this injustice for our servicemembers and their families, who bear the burden of service as well.”
