Republican politicians throughout the nation are puzzled and angry at the lack of love coming from their constituents. So they don’t have to use their not-so-hard earned money to buy a clue, here is a gift of one.
House Bill 2246 is winding its way through Harrisburg and the Republican-controlled Pennsylvania Senate appears to be putting it on a fast-track for passage.
What the bill does is to allow trial lawyers to use non-verifiable evidence to seek pain and suffering damages for those injured in car accidents.
A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 21 with a vote by the full Senate expected shortly afterwards.
The bill were introduced at the request of the state’s trial bar association, which now calls itself the Pennsylvania Association for Justice.
The language to quantify pain and suffering awards was inserted into HB 2246, which was originally a bill dealing with accident scene management and general vehicle matters.
