Are Medical Malpractice Payouts Going Up?
Let's think about it: healthcare costs have gone up 400% in 20 years. Of that 400% less than 1% has to do with medical malpractice, which is breaching of a duty to take reasonable care by a doctor toward a patient. So the solution to escalating healthcare costs is to cap medical malpractice damages? That makes no sense and is utterly un-American. There are not supposed to be special privileges in this country.
