State lawmakers are considering a bill, dubbed The Patient Injury Act, that would prevent patients and their families from suing doctors and hospitals in Georgia.
"We need to overhaul the [medical malpractice] system," said the bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Brandon Beach, R-District 21 of Fulton County, during a recent Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing.

"We think you should see a 15 to 22 percent decrease in your premiums," said Beach.
