U.S. Congressman Ralph Norman (R-SC) issued the following statement on the “SFC Richard Stayskal Military Medical Accountability Act of 2019” (H.R. 2422):

“Every member of our military is entitled to well-defined benefits should an injury or death occur while serving our nation.  This is true regardless of the circumstances or if someone else was at fault.  If we give trial lawyers the ability to sue our military for non-combat medical malpractice, those awards will inevitably be valued higher than, for example, the benefits paid to someone who was severely injured or killed in combat.  This would be highly inappropriate, and I will oppose any legislation that enables this type of inequity.”
