What is tort reform for medical malpractice suits?
The issue of tort reform has been a subject of serious debate in congress for some time. Currently, caps on recovery vary according to the damages and the specific case. Many states now limit non-economic damages to an amount between $150,000 and $1 million. Proponents of reform believe that the prevalence of medical malpractice suits hurts the quality of treatment that doctors can afford to give to patients. Others believe that malpractice suits actually keep medical professionals in check.
