New report on medical malpractice disputes tort reformers arguments
AboutLawsuits is reporting on a new report that confirms what we already knew. While the cost of medical care in the United States continues to climb, the amount paid out for medical malpractice continues to fall, contradicting claims by tort reform advocates who argue that lawsuits are driving up healthcare costs. I say we already knew that because, as I have reported many times over the last few years, pretty much every single study done on this subject has concluded the same thing. If you click on the "medical malpractice" label and scroll down, you will find a number of old posts with links to a lot of those studies. For more on the new one, go to AboutLawsuits.
