Why Malpractice is Off Limits


Malpractice Crisis Article

Excerpts from the Wall Street Journal article:

“A few thousand trial lawyers have a lock on Democrats, who refuse to consider any legal reform.”

“It doesn’t matter much whether the doctor did anything wrong—a lawyer can always come up with a theory of what might have been done differently. What matters most is the extent of the tragedy and that a case holds potential for pulling on a jury’s heartstrings.”

“Former Sen. John Edwards, for example, made a fortune bringing 16 cases against hospitals for babies born with cerebral palsy. Each of those tragic cases was worth millions in settlement. But according to a 2006 study at the National Institutes of Health, in nine out of 10 cases of cerebral palsy nothing done by a doctor could have caused the condition.”
