Tort Reform Doesn’t Cut Health Care Costs

The Lexington (KY) Herald-Leader today writes “Sen. Mitch McConnell’s No. 1 idea for fixing what ails our health care system is to limit the rights of those maimed by medical malpractice. But states that have enacted curbs on what McConnell calls ‘junk lawsuits’ have yet to see the cost savings promised by McConnell and other proponents of tort reform.” Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham “surveyed 27 states that have limits on non-economic damages and discovered no savings for health care consumers.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
