EDUCATE YOURSELF WITH THE FACTS REGARDING THIS ISSUE BEFORE YOU SUPPORT IT!
Watch this video. Then read the plethora of data with the facts.
Please, take the time to read the following links and learn the facts about medical malpractice, and tort reform.
This issue of using the medical profession and physicians' excessive malpractice insurance premiums, as the excuse to make, ''capping' judgments law.
When in fact, tort reform will actually protect the surgeon who operates while intoxicated, and amputates the wrong limb, or causes other harm/death.
Furthermore, tort reform, will protect corporations from liability claims when consumers are injured from products/items that are of poor design, faulty production or manufacturing that causes harm.
Lest we forget the Pinto scandal, the Firestone tire scandal, and the recent Toyota problems. Corporations have meetings with actuaries who provide a mathematical formula to show how changing production or fixing the problem will cost more money than the likely lawsuits from harm or death to the consumer. Now consider how a corporation using the "cap" law will have no incentive to provide you a safe/quality product. All they care about is the bottom line and making a profit.
Companies can continue their flawed design, low quality production and cheap manufacture, because it's more profitable to not be concerned with quality or safety. The 'cap law' will allow the sale of flawed, unsafe products and any harm caused will only cost $250,000 to the injured/dead consumer's family! It's an acceptable way of doing business or business as usual!?
Come to think of it what happened to the pride of American workmanship? The pride of producing a quality product? Profit over people? Is that the American way?
JUST SAY NO TO TORT REFORM!
