In order to cut through the misinformation about lawsuits and tort reform, we recommend this report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The CBO is a nonpartisan organization that provides economic and budget analyses that Congress needs to make its budgeting decisions.
The report found that insurance company profits increased after states enacted tort reform. The report also stated that only 1.5 percent of likely victims of medical error filed lawsuits. So much for the notion that malpractice lawsuits are out of control.
