Tort Reform Is All About Miss-Information
November 29, 2009
Read this article about the attempts at tort reform in Oregon. It is amazing to me that insurance miss-information machine is so well oiled and is working at full steam!
American Bar Association studies reflect that in the states which have embraced tort reform, there has been little or no reduction in the costs of medical malpractice insurance. And, keep in mind that the huge punitive damage verdicts which get our attention are returned by juries, not the judges or the lawyers. The people of the community must feel that the defendant needs to be punished, or they would not impose such large sums.
