Texas Two Step — Tort Reform Style

Comments Off

I’m sorry for my prolonged absence, but the practice of law has stepped in the way of my blogging. Not only have we had the usual business going on, but I was set to start a trial today in a small case. Finally, the adjuster just about doubled her offer last Friday afternoon around 4:30, and we got the thing resolved. But getting ready for trial is kind of like grocery shopping — no matter the amount of groceries you’re buying or the size of the case, it still takes a lot of the same work to get down to the store or the courthouse.

Add in the fact that a new legislative session has started and we’re trying to stay on top of tort reform fires, time has just been short.

Fortunately, Steve Lombardi has been taking up my slack, and he has a great post on a horrific Texas medical malpractice case where the plaintiff was a victim of our tort reform era cap on non-economic damages. I can’t say anything about it near as eloquently as Lombardi so I urge you to click on the link to read his post.
