What happens when the courthouse doors are closed to victims of medical injuries?
This may take a while to sink in, but, insurance companies and executives benefit. The medical malpractice insurance company ProAssurance has now "beat earnings expectation in seven of the past nine quarters and a recent acquisition should keep profit on the rise."
So let's keep this in perspective, and let's keep it simple.
Tort Reform = (Less access to the courts for individuals) + (More profits for Insurance Companies)
What do you think? Is this fair?
If high insurance malpractice premiums are driving physicians out of your state, why not ask the insurance companies to operate just a little less profitably.
