In 2003, the state of Texas passed a radical bill that placed strict limits on medical malpractice damages for pain and suffering. Under the guise of “tort reform,” this law has not only placed sweeping restrictions on the rights of citizens who have been injured by malpractice, but failed to curb the rising costs of health care within the state of Texas. If proponents are successful in exporting similar laws to other states, they could rob patients of their right to fair and just compensation for their injuries.
