Senator: Med-Mal bill would create “tremendous inequities” (video)

Legislation to take power away from juries in medical malpractice cases is now scheduled for Senate debate Wednesday afternoon.

Buncombe County Senator Martin Nesbitt  told reporters Tuesday the legislation would establish “tremendous inequities” in the system, favoring wealthy professionals over average citizens. Nesbitt says the issue of damages should be determined by jurors not legislators.

    WHAT A RIDICULOUS ARGUMENT ! TORT REFORM WOULD DRIVE DOWN HEALTHCARE COSTS AT LEAST 15 % RIGHT OFF THE TOP.

    What world you living in?

    Tort reform isn’t about lowering healthcare. Tort reform is about taking from NC citizens the ability to defend ourselves in all manner of issues.

    Unless something is done to stop this type of tort reform in North Carolina we will not be able to exercise our rights in a court of law to any great affect.
