What is the rationale of tort reform?
The rationale of tort reform is heavily influenced by the various medical malpractice insurers. In an effort to reduce the potential damages awarded in medical malpractice cases, these insurers appealed to a variety of legislatures to enact legislation limiting the amount of damages that could be awarded in medical malpractice cases, with the supposed intention of controlling rising insurance costs and medical care costs. However, there is very little evidence to suggest that limiting medical malpractice compensation has had any effect on the cost of medical care.
