No Jobs In Ohio After Tort Reform

My Friend and Ohio personal injury attorney Brian Wilson discusses the drop in tort lawsuits in Ohio between 2002 and 2009.  Between those two years, many tort deform laws took effect and were upheld by the Ohio Supreme Court.

Compare these numbers to 2002, shortly before The Ohio Legislature passed the beginning of many of The Chamber's lobbied for reforms. Notice the HUGE drop in "personal injury" type lawsuits (in bold) in 2009 as compared to the "pre-reform"
numbers in 2002:

You’ll have to visit his blog to see the numbers.  The point of his blog post is to show how gutting consumer protections has (a) lowered the number of personal injury lawsuits, (b) not created any jobs, and (c) show how the Chamber of Commerce is full of it.

Hey Justinian, I'm a big fan of your blog.

You know, it is really scary what tort reform can do to this country. What will injured victims do if they cannot receive full compensation for their injuries? It would be interesting to see whether personal injury victims are depending more on government funded services to make up for these alleged tort reforms.
