Hirsh Singh on Health Care

 

 


Cap malpractice damages; limit frivolous lawsuits

Medical Malpractice & Tort Reform: New Jersey has one of the worst litigation environments in the country--which affects the healthcare industry and doctors specifically with frivolous lawsuits and exorbitant malpractice insurance. As Governor, I plan to address these issues in the following manner:
  • Work to cap malpractice damages.
  • Allow healthcare practitioners to recoup economic damages from frivolous lawsuits.
  • Introduce statute of limitation on claims to prevent abuses.
