New Jersey Employment, Civil Rights and Medical Malpractice Lawyer Discusses the Myth of the Medical Malpractice Lawsuit "Crisis"

Or... To The Medical Malpractice Insurance Industry: "Liar, liar, pant on fire!" 

"New Jersey Civil Rights attorney discusses medical errors are the leading preventable cause of death in the United States"

Johns Hopkins, one of the most respected medical research institutions in the Country, estimates in a recent study that more than 250,000 Americans die each year from medical mistakes. To put this number in perspective, on the Center for Disease Control's official list, that ranks medical errors just behind heart disease and cancer, which each took about 600,000 lives in 2014. It puts medical mistakes in front of respiratory diseases, which claimed about 150,000 deaths. To put it in further perspective, automobile accidents only claim about 30,000 lives each year in comparison with those other causes.

New Jersey Drug Liability and Product Liability Consumer Protection Attorney Discusses the FDA Hiding Information about the Safety of Drugs

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is supposed to protect the American public. It's supposed to stand between the public and purveyors of cures, medical devices, techniques, procedures and drugs, making sure that these techniques have been properly vetted and are safe before they're used on a defenseless American public.

New Jersey Medical Malpractice Attorney Discusses Medical Malpractice Caps and Vulnerable Victims

I've always said that damages caps don't work. In every State in which medical malpractice "damages caps" have been tried, they've failed to resolve the fictional "medical malpractice insurance crisis." Obviously, you can't fix something that doesn't exist. The crisis has been fomented by greedy medical malpractice insurance companies that see a way to exploit Americans' fears of not having "adequate medical care" by blaming the victims and their attorneys rather than the bad doctors, nurses and hospitals that deserve the focus.

Civil Rights and Personal Injury Attorney Discusses the Negative Impacts of Tort Reform

I've blogged about "Tort Reform" - attempts, under the misleading word "reform" (which implies a good, necessary change) - to gut the civil justice system by limiting access to a jury trial, compelling arbitration, erecting barriers to suit and by limiting damages.
