Tort Reform Cuts Medical Malpractice Lawsuits not Incidents

Comments Off

A recent article published on MedPage Today about Medical Malpractice Reform suggests that tort reform lead to a decrease in the amount of medical malpractice lawsuits but has not decreased the number of incidents involving medical errors.

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or healthcare provider’s careless medical treatment causes injury to a patient.

In some states, tort reform has made it difficult for medical malpractice victims to receive necessary compensation for their injuries. No one should have to bear the financial burden of medical treatment that resulted from a hospital mistake.

Victims of a surgical error, medical misdiagnosis or other medical malpractice events are advised to contact a lawyer immediately after the adverse event occurs so their legal rights can be preserved.
