Graham sponsors ‘loser pays’ medical malpractice bill

side note: United States Se. Lindsey Graham is recommending a “Loser Pays” law for medical malpractice claims. In this scenario, if a patient sued his or her doctor for medical malpractice and lost, the patient would have to pay the doctor’s legal fees.

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., introduced legislation Monday that would require losing plaintiffs in medical malpractice lawsuits to pay legal costs for both sides.

The so-called “loser pays” bill, which Graham and U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., sponsored, is meant to reduce the number of frivolous medical malpractice lawsuits, the senators said.
