1. Wrongful Death Claims: A couple is driving and was hit by a drunk driver. The wife in the passenger seat is eight months pregnant at the time of the accident. Her husband the father of the unborn child is killed in the crash. Do you feel the unborn child once born should have a valid legal claim against the drunk driver for the loss(death) of its parent, or should the fact that the fetus was unborn at the time of the crash prevent the now living child from bringing a claim?
2. Hospital Negligence: Should a negligent Hospital be held responsible for a patient contracting a deadly infection due to poor surgical sterilization or does the patient assume the risk if told before surgery that infection can happen?
3. Wrongful Death Lawsuit Awards: In a lawsuit brought by surviving family members for medical malpractice wrongful death of a family member, would you permit a financial award for the emotional pain and suffering felt by the victim's family? Or would you limit the award to only the financial loss of support caused by the wrongful death? If you would permit an award for emotional suffering, who would be eligible to be compensated? Would such an award only go to a parent, spouse or child, or would you permit compensation to anyone affected? Where would you draw the line?
