Ken Rothweiler, President of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, calls on the Pennsylvania Legislature not to punish medical malpractice victims by passing tort reform legislation. Tort reform limits the amount of money victims of hospital and doctor mistakes can be awarded. Our firm believes that the people who should decide what damages are warranted are the judge and/or jury, after being presented with all the facts and evidence. The right to a civil jury trial of your peers is preserved in the 7th Amendment, and this right should not be curbed by state legislatures.
