A Texas Success Story
Everything really is bigger in Texas. The Lone Star State has experienced enormous job growth in the last few years. It is no coincidence that this job surge followed the state’s passage of significant legal reforms such as “loser pays,” where plaintiffs must cover their opponents’ legal fees if their claims are found groundless.
These changes have brought Texas litigation costs to a record low and made it a model of success for other states.
But perhaps most impressive has been the impact of legal change on Texas’s healthcare system. A new study found that healthcare liability reform brought thousands of doctors to Texas - this flood of healthcare professionals has improved medical care among underserved communities and given Texans increased access to in-demand specialists such as cardiologists, emergency care physicians, and vascular surgeons.
The verdict is in: reform works. Now will your candidates work for reform?
