Texas Medical Malpractice Suits Have Almost Disappeared

Here’s a short, “in-your-face” statement about medical malpractice in Texas by Ms. Joanne Doroshow, Executive Director of the Center for Justice & Democracy:

No offense to my GOP friends and their one big health care idea – i.e., “tort reform” — but who wants to walk into a hospital these days knowing that there is no legal accountability for unsafe medical care? Like in Texas, the new Republican “It” state, where medical malpractice lawsuits are now “practically to zero.” Why, “[t]here’s no downside to tort reform”! writes Bill O’Reilly.

I suppose he means Texas, where you can just about forget ever being able to file a lawsuit if you or your child is injured due to incompetent medical care. It’s worse than that, though. Patient safety has taken a huge nose-dive in Texas. The doctors haven’t returned, and lots of them are now lining their pockets performing unnecessary tests for reasons having nothing to do with lawsuits because, well, they are nearly gone.

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...)
