With the Supreme Court of Georgia’s recent monumental decision on medical malpractice damages caps, the tort reform debate is back in the news. As a Marietta Medical Malpractice Lawyer, when I saw that Joe Kirby (Editor of the Editorial Page of the Marietta Daily Journal) had written an article on medical malpractice damages caps, I was curious to see what his take on the issue would be. The MDJ’s Editoral Page has a long standing reputation as a respected conservative voice for Metro Atlanta.
Mr. Kirby’s article on med mal tort reform is a refreshing look at the issue without a political bias. If you are interested in learning more about the practical effect of tort reform I recommend you read this MDJ article.
