Family fights medical malpractice caps

He was a kind, easygoing 16-year-old who "always did what he was supposed to be doing," his mother says. These days, things are not going easily for T.J. Denham, now 20. Instead of attending college or starting a career, he lives at home with his parents, unable to walk, swallow food or speak.

Back when he was 16, he underwent an operation, but a surgeon's mistake left him with a debilitating traumatic brain injury. Now his family is speaking out against proposed caps on medical malpractice lawsuits.

The Iowa family isn't speaking out because they have something to gain. In fact, they have already been through the process.

"It was a relief to us to be able to get a settlement that we can use to take care of him," his mother said. "He's obviously living at home right now, and we're using those funds to provide for him."

Not an ideal situation for any parents who want the best for their children, but better than being left to bear the financial burden of care on top of all the grief they have gone through because of what happened to their boy.

The family is speaking out against medical malpractice caps because they know that the settlement enables them to provide proper care for their son. They don't want other families and other victims of doctor negligence to be denied justice for injuries that can last a lifetime.

An experienced Huntington medical malpractice attorney can help you pursue justice for the injuries you have suffered or for the harm done to a loved one.
