Certainly, the night club tragedies in Chicago and Rhode Island and the horrible negligence of Duke's medical staff in giving a heart of the wrong blood type to a young transplant patient demonstrate the need for justice and a fair remedy in court. The injuries and deaths that took place were all quite preventable and this is the primary reason for tort law in the U.S. and Wisconsin. Unfortunately, the laws here in Wisconsin limit the wrongful death recovery of damages unfairly. Wisconsin law also unduly restricts the recovery of damages resulting from medical malpractice in Wisconsin. These laws should be changed so that in Wisconsin personal injury victims and families who remain after a wrongful death can obtain full damages and justice.
