TEXAS LIABILITY SUIT PAYOUTS IN THE BASEMENT
A new national study of all 2012 health care liability suit judgments and settlements reports Texas is at the absolute bottom in payments per-capita. I think this is a direct result of our 2003 liability reforms and just one more piece of evidence as to why we have to fight so hard to protect them. Once again this session — working with the Texas Alliance for Patient Access, Texas Medical Liability Trust, and others — we’ve made sure no bills weakening our reforms got any traction.
