Windfalls ahead for Illinois plaintiffs?

Collateral sources dept.: per the reformist-backed Madison County Record, "State Rep. Jay Hoffman (D-Collinsville), a member attorney of the Lakin Law Firm in Wood River, is the Illinois House sponsor of SB1911. He drove the bill through a House committee with an amendment that allows a plaintiff to recover damages for the amount of medical bills billed rather than the amount actually paid to health care providers." Illinois Civil Justice League president Ed Murnane says the measure would provide windfall benefits to injury claimants.
