Trial Lawyers, Inc.: Health Care



Today, at the Legal Reform Summit Walter mentioned yesterday, the Manhattan Institute Center for Legal Policy released a report entitled Trial Lawyers, Inc.: Health Care, The Lawsuit Industry's Effect on American Health 2005. The report is the third in a series documenting how trial lawyers operate as a business, following a September 2003 report looking at trial lawyers in America and an April 2005 report focusing on our nation's largest state, California. This latest effort looks at how litigation affects all aspects of health care provision in the U.S. -- drugs, medical devices, doctors, hospitals, and insurers. The full report, and the two previous entries, are available here.
