The popular notion of tort reform focuses on medical malpractice. This ignores the vast majority of cases. Warren supports broader reform.
Warren proposes to eliminate pain and suffering damages in most cases. These “non-economic” damages would still be available in cases of gross negligence, and claims for medical bills and lost wages would be unaffected.
This kind of broad tort reform would eliminate 90% of personal injury lawsuits. It would dramatically reduce insurance premiums not only for doctors, but also for our cars and our homes.
Warren understands this issue better than career politicians. He has worked on all sides of this issue: For an insurance company, for a judge, and now as a personal injury lawyer helping injured people.
