Reform Health Care Now: The malpractice liability crisis persists


To obstetricians, gynecologists and many other physicians, one of the most glaring omissions in the current health care reform debate is the failure to address the medical liability crisis. Medical liability has increased the cost of health care and forced many doctors to limit or give up their practices.

Though this has been a contentious issue for many years, will the Democrats finally address the problem, or conveniently sweep it under the rug rather than risk losing the long-standing support of the trial lawyer lobby?
