MEDICINE READY TO FIGHT TO SAVE LIABILITY CAPS

As expected, the personal injury trial lawyers representing former Dallas Cowboy Ron Springs filed a federal class-action lawsuit, challenging the noneconomic damages caps in our 2003 health care liability reforms. TMA is teaming with the Texas Alliance for Patient Access, Texas Medical Liability Trust, and other pro-reform groups to foil the challenge. As 30 years of experience have taught our colleagues in California, we constantly must be vigilant to rebuff judicial and legislative attacks on our tort reforms. TMA General Counsel Rocky Wilcox, JD, was in Hawaii to help physicians there pass liability reforms over the objections of trial lawyers who are pretending that our new laws aren’t working. Rocky helped to set them straight.
