SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) What are your views on tort reform? Should we have a cap? If so on punitive damages? horror stories I've heard of.... 1. A harvard educated pediatrician sued for 22 million, they took his house all his and his wife's assets and garnished his wages... 2. Some OB/GYN doctors and neonatologists in states without tort reform have malpractice premiums = to their salaries ?! 3. Surgeons in Las Vegas revolted, LEFT the state. The state's only level 1 trauma center in Las vegas has no orthopaedic or general surgeons, and in an emergency effort passed a tort reform damages cap. My state, California, has tort reform of 250k for punitive damages (I think?!)...what do you think of tort reform? Do hungry trial lawyers make you queasy?
