Brian Wilson TV Interview On Tort Reform
For over 30 years, insurance companies have spent billions lobbying for “tort reform.” Many people think tort reform is about curbing so called "frivolous lawsuits." Replaying the "frivolous lawsuit" card is how corporations and insurance companies SELL it to legislators and the public. In reality, however, the tort reform movement has little to nothing to do with limiting frivolous lawsuits. The real goal of this movement is to limit what innocent victims with legitimate injuries can recover in a lawsuit. Ohio tort reform laws passed in the last decade now protect drunk drivers, child molesters, nursing homes that abuse the elderly, doctors and hospitals who commit preventable medical errors, and foreign manufacturers of shoddy products. In essence, these laws give wrongdoers and their insurance companies a monetary discount for their carelessness, according to Canton. Ohio malpractice lawyer Brian R. Wilson.
