Care bills mount for malpractice victims

Re “Jahi's fight for life turns political” (Forum, Dan Morain, Jan. 5): As someone who is caring for another suffering from a doctor’s mistake, I can tell you the medical malpractice law needs to be changed. The bills are mounting and my mother’s care rides on my shoulders. Because of the $250,000 cap on potential compensation, it is extremely hard for me to find anyone willing to help me stand up for justice on behalf of my mother. Yet the doctor’s lack of care has caused my mother to change from an independent, walking senior to someone needing round-the-clock care. -- Melissa Tereck, Dixon
