Tort Reform Has Limitations
July 7, 2010
Here is the issue at the heard of the problem that exist with the idea of Tort Reform as presented to us.
Most tort “reform” is limited to the arena of medical malpractice. But according to Scientific American, preventable medical mistakes kill 200,000 Americans every year. Despite all of these preventable deaths, insurance company lobbyists have convinced a great number of Americans to give up their right to a jury trial if one of these “accidents” happens to them or a family member.
The only entity standing to benefit from Tort Reform is the Insurance Industry and only the Insurance Industry.
