New study concludes what we knew already: "stronger" med mal laws do not result in better care
A new study from Northwestern's Feinberg School of Medicine has concluded that stronger medical malpractice laws do not translate to better care. The TortsProf blog has a link here. This, of course, is not news to anyone who has followed the issues related to med mal law and the attempts to "reform" it. There are multiple articles and books that discuss the evidence that debunks the myth of a med mal crisis and the need to eliminate the rights of injured victims to recover for their injuries. For more on the subject you can go the section on medical malpractice on this blog and scroll down. You will find many stories, links and information on the subject.
