Tort reform sorely needed in Illinois


 

I value Dr. Barbieri’s editorials on the issue of tort reform. Here in Illinois, the trial lawyers are decimating us physicians, and ObGyns are fleeing to nearby states where tort reform has been passed. Meanwhile, the trial lawyers hype the need for insurance reform, but never mention tort reform. Thanks for your dedication to this very serious issue.

Dr. Barbieri Responds:

I appreciate Dr. Tunca’s supportive comments. We need to work together, as a discipline, to correct a tort system that is “out of control.”
