Beasley Allen attorney Gibson Vance, who is serving as President of the American Association for Justice, talks with WHAM TV-13 News reporter Evan Dawson about the facts and fiction surrounding medical malpractice. A common public perception is that tort reform is necessary in order to reduce healthcare costs. However, Vance points out that it is essential that the public retains access to justice by jury trial in order to ensure best practices. “It would be fine with me if there were no cases of medical negligence, if no one was killed each year because of medical negligence,” Vance said. “What we’re concerned about are the patients who are being injured, and if you have tort reform, you take away the accountability and you will have more people being injured.”
