Opinion: Malpractice suits need limits

A reasonable limit on medical malpractice lawsuits would go a long way to eliminate the rapid rise in health-care costs and related health-insurance costs.

Pennsylvania is seeing many of its doctors leave the state because we have no limits on medical malpractice lawsuits, making malpractice insurance skyrocket.

The only other alternative is to raise their fees, which is why our medical care and associated health costs are increasing so much.

All it would take is for the Legislature to pass a bill limiting malpractice settlements at reasonable levels to stop Pennsylvania’s skyrocketing medical costs.
