Pain and suffering: No medical malpractice caps in Iowa

side note: For all the commonsense reasons tort reform is advantageous to our society, there are instances of true medical malpractice that make the argument difficult. Here is one of those heartbreaking instances.

Jan. 17–S chelley Sanders went into a Davenport hospital on her 35th birthday in 2003 to have her fallopian tubes tied, a relatively simple procedure, but a surgeon’s mistake almost killed her.

That near-death experience and her resulting poor health, some Iowa attorneys said, make the case against capping the damages patients can receive in medical malpractice cases.

During her surgery, Sanders’ surgeon unknowingly punctured two holes in her bladder.
