Medical malpractice lawsuits are common and controversial in the United States. Since early 2002, doctors' insurance premiums for malpractice coverage have soared. As Congress and state governments debate laws intended to stabilize the cost of insurance, doctors continue to blame lawyers and lawyers continue to blame doctors and insurance companies. This book, which is the capstone of three years' comprehensive research funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts, goes well beyond the conventional debate over tort reform and connects medical liability to broader trends and goals in American health policy. Contributions from leading figures in health law and policy marshal the best available information, present new empirical evidence, and offer cutting-edge analysis of potential reforms involving patient safety, liability insurance, and tort litigation.


 Reviews:

"This is an excellent book that looks at the intersection of our health care and legal systems from a number of valuable and often original perspectives. The backgrounds and perspectives of the contributing authors are diverse with a wide variety of viewpoints represented. I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking fresh insight into the medical malpractice crisis in the United States." -Richard E. Anderson, M.D., F.A.C.P., Chairman/CEO, The Doctors Company

"A comprehensive treatment of the issues raised in the debate over medical malpractice from a highly knowledgeable set of authors, along with good advice on where we might go from here. I am adding it to my reading list." -Joseph Newhouse, Harvard University

"For those who have long been embroiled in the multi-faceted medical liability problem – or have even come by it more recently, the need for a new prism through which to approach, examine, and address this complex and often emotional conundrum has become increasingly apparent. This book is that prism. The thoughtful, elaborate, and frequently provocative papers both written and assembled by Sage and Kersh offer hope, historical perspective, and challenges to those who actually want to constructively change the system to make it truly just for all of the involved parties and most particularly for injured patients." -Dennis S. O'Leary, M.D., President, Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations

"The book is an excellent resource for anyone interested i what we know, don't know, and know that [it] isn't so much about medical malpractice and its reform. By reframing medical malpractice as a health policy isue, the book has the potential to move us beyond the current debate..."
