"Exposing The Lie Of Tort Reform" on the Huffington Post

One of last week's blog posts touched upon the concept of tort reform, which is a major legal topic amongst the personal injury law community.  As a refresher from last week, tort reform is a process that involves placing a limit on the dollar amount that a person who files a civil lawsuit can recover.  It excludes economic damages, such as lost wages, but places a limit on things like pain and suffering and other compensatory and punitive damages.  Tort reform law varies between states, and in most cases, has not been updated in many, many years.   


Tort reform was recently the topic of an opinion article in the Huffington Post.  The article, which was written by an attorney, goes into length as to why tort reform is hurting personal injury victims and their families.  The author also cites a specific example in the case of a brain injured little boy who may not be getting fully compensated due to limits placed by tort reform.  Please browse the original article, titled Exposing the Lie of Tort Reform, at your leisure.  The opinion piece clearly highlights many of the same opinions that personal injury lawyers and their clients feel when they are confronted with unreasonable limits placed by tort reform regulations.
