MLMIC Insurance Company is proud to present the latest episode of Talk Studio, a video series on important and trending issues in professional liability, healthcare law and risk management.
Here, Marc Craw, Esq., legislative counsel to MLMIC Insurance Company, provides a special report on critical legislation that recently passed both houses in the New York State legislature.
Known as the “Grieving Families Act” or the Wrongful Death Legislative Liability Expansion, this bill will have a substantial and negative impact on healthcare professionals in New York State. While it has not yet been delivered to the Governor, action is expected soon, be that veto or approval.
“As healthcare rapidly evolves, we often see challenges that may affect the way physicians and healthcare professionals practice medicine,” explains Craw. “I urge our readers to learn about this important bill … as it could have serious implications for healthcare providers in the state of New York.”
