More Proof That Calls For Tort Reform Are Just Political Games

A new Public Citizen report shows that while medical malpractice payments are at near-record lows, health care costs continue to rise. You can read about the report on Public Citizen’s website. This makes one thing clear: claims that medical malpractice lawsuits are driving the high costs of health care are bogus political games. One thing you’ll rarely hear from proponents of tort ‘reform’ is an emphasis on patient safety. Also, they won’t tell you that among the alarming number of documented injuries and deaths caused by medical negligence, very few of the victims even file suit.

Although tort ‘reform’ is not reducing instances of medical negligence, it is a very effective way to deny the victims of medical negligence compensation and allows medical providers to escape accountability. For all of the talk about accountability and responsibility you hear from tort ‘reformers,’ they are happy to provide an exception where patient safety is involved.

“We would like to express our gratitude to you (Hunt Willis) for accepting our case. First of all, when I called this law firm, a very sweet and kind lady answered the telephone and gave me assurance by asking and going over the accident with me, while my husband was in the hospital. I felt assured I was doing the right thing for us. She was so helpful in so many ways. What a professional lady. Secondly, we are much pleased that you have settled this case with the insurance company to receive the proper amount to assist us in so many ways. My husband and I are very happy with you and the firm in handling our case. You made us have confidence in your professional and integrity along with your assistant Ms. Routh, when you both came to see us in our home, in which we saw your compassion and thoughtfulness at that time. We will never forget what you have done for us, and we thank the lord for directing me to contact this firm. I’m glad I did.”
