PAMED Advocates for Medical Liability Reform

Earlier in September PAMED participated in a press conference in Philadelphia organized by the US Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform.  PAMED said that Pennsylvania’s lawsuit climate and Philadelphia’s courts need to change for the benefit and fairness to all.  As a step, the legislature is encouraged to pass an Apology Rule to allow a physician to express regret over an adverse outcome without it being used against the physician in a court of law as an admission of negligence.
