Opinion: Tort Reform Laws Do Not Benefit the General Public

In an opinion piece published in the Huffington Post, Larry Bodine, editor in chief of, argues that tort reform is a lie and that it “doesn’t benefit the general public and results mainly in stripping Americans of their rights.” Bodine writes that proposals for tort reform legislation “are pushed by well-funded, anti-consumer groups with friendly-sounding names like ‘ALEC’ and the ‘U.S. Chamber of Commerce.’ Their goal is to boost insurance company profits, insulate incompetent doctors from liability and promote propaganda about a non-existent ‘lawsuit explosion.’” He argues that the true result of tort reform legislation is that badly injured consumers are forced to shoulder the high costs of medical mistakes in order to provide cheaper malpractice insurance for doctors who have made such medical errors.

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...)
