Legal Beagle Podcast: Nick and Courtney Rowley

Legal Beagle Podcast: Nick and Courtney Rowley

Nick Rowley, Courtney Rowley, and Daniel Bidegaray join Jonathan to talk about Loss of Consortium. Loss of consortium is a standalone claim for damages brought by the spouse (and sometimes children) of an individual who has been injured or killed as a result of a defendant’s negligence.

Think loss of love and affection from your spouse because they were injured. Nick and Courtney tried a case in Bakersfield back in September of 2021 and obtained a multi-million dollar verdict for Loss of Consortium.

Nick goes as far as to do an actual role-play of how you talk to potential jurors during Voir Dire (jury selection) about a Loss of Consortium claim.

NATION STATE OF PLAY PODCAST FEATURING NICHOLAS ROWLEY ON CALIFORNIA’S REGRESSIVE MALPRACTICE DAMAGES CAP

NATION STATE OF PLAY PODCAST FEATURING NICHOLAS ROWLEY ON CALIFORNIA’S REGRESSIVE MALPRACTICE DAMAGES CAP

Is a child’s life worth more than $250,000, if negligently killed by Medical Malpractice.  The answer is no!  Not since 1975 in the State of California.  @JuryTrialLawyer Nicholas Rowley, has been featured on the Nation State and Play podcast to discuss the most regressive restriction on the Civil Rights of Health Care Patients in American history.  MICRA is a one-size-fits-all $250,000 cap on Quality of Life and Wrongful Death Damages suffered by victims of Medical Malpractice, which just so happens to be the 3rd leading cause of death in America.

If you want to learn about California’s bought and paid for politicians and the political corruption that has kept this horrific law in place for almost 50 years, listen to this podcast and check out fairnessact.com to learn about the Fairness for Injured Patient Act (FIPA) which will fix this outdated law that makes insurance companies billions to the detriment of thousands of health care patients and families each year.

Together, we can improve health care, put an end to meritless lawsuits, save our State hundreds of millions of tax payer dollars each year, and most importantly save lives.
