Case Study on Impact of Tort Reform in Mississippi

Mark Behrens (Shook, Hardy) has just published Medical Liability Reform:  A Case Study of Mississippi, 118:2 Obstetrics & Gynecology 335 (Aug. 2011).  The article examines the impact of tort reform in Mississippi on physicians, particularly ob-gyns, insured by the Medical Assurance Company of Mississippi (MACM), the leading medical liability insurer in the state. The article compares the number of tort suits against these physicians by year from 1986 to 2010.  The article concludes that "Mississippi's tort reform laws were associated with a steep drop in lawsuits against MACM-insured physicians."
