STOP THE LAWYERS FROM DILUTING HEALTH LIABILITY REFORMS
The trial lawyers have begun their campaign to tear down our 2003 medical liability reforms. The first showdown is Thursday in the Senate State Affairs Committee. TMA is rallying member physicians to stop Senate Bill 152, which would lower the standard for liability in emergency cases. Our liability reforms have made a tremendous difference in Texas – especially in trauma care. All Texas physicians must act together to protect them. If your senator serves on State Affairs, use TMA’s Grassroots Action Center to send a message: Vote “NO” on SB 152.
