Send This Letter In Favor of Tort Reform

Tort reform is a HUGE topic which I will not attempt to address completely here. The basics are that we have too many lawsuits. I think we can all agree on that.

One way to lessen the burden of lawsuits is to ask our Congressmen to limit the amount of money a person can win in a lawsuit. These limitations do not limit the amount of actual damages you can collect. If you truly lose $10M or $10B, a jury can still award you that money. What it does limit is the amount of pain and suffering damages and/or punitive damages a jury can award. These are often called punishment jury verdicts and they cost businesses billions of dollars per year. And what costs business costs us because they pass the costs along in increased prices.

One thing you can do right now is send a letter to your Congressmen and women. Sick of Lawsuits has already written the letter for you. You just need to put in your contact information, print and mail. Your Senators and Representatives will be automatically selected for you based on your address.

Every letter helps. Tort reform is KEY to the reformation of our health care system since doctors are fleeing cities and states where juries give up large verdicts by the droves.

Together we can save this nation. Go Team! Go! never, Never, NEVER quit.
