Cancel the Cap Legislation
Bill History & Bipartisan Support
When it comes to championing victims’ rights, Attorney Joseph Cammarata doesn’t hesitate to take on formidable, powerful opponents.
Nancy’s case inspired Mr. Cammarata to spearhead efforts to change Virginia law to hold medical wrongdoers fully accountable for the harms and losses they caused to the victims of their negligence.
He brought the issue to the attention of State Sen. Bill Stanley (R-District 20) who agreed to be the chief patron of a bill to change the law. Sen. Stanley introduced legislation known as SB 1107. State Sen. Scott Surovell (D-District 36) is a co-patron of the bill.
