Car Accident Lawyer in Tampa Explains the Concept of Tort Reform

As any car accident lawyer knows, tort reform has the potential to fundamentally change how accident victims get compensated for their injuries. Chances are you have heard about tort reform, but aren’t entirely sure what it means and why it is important. In the broadest sense, tort reform refers to a series of proposals that are intended to reduce the number of accident-related lawsuits in America, and to limit the amount of money accident victims are permitted to receive. For example, say a car accident lawyer files a lawsuit on behalf of his or her clients and seeks punitive damages. Most proponents of tort reform would argue that punitive damages should not be available since they aren’t meant to compensate the victim, but rather “punish” the at-fault party and deter him from engaging in similar conduct in the future.

Abolishing or putting caps on punitive damage awards is one of many different ideas that make up the concept of tort reform. If one thing is for sure, it’s that the debate over tort reform is likely to continue for many years to come as there are many plausible arguments why it should or should not go in effect. 

Meanwhile, if you have been seriously injured in a car accident, a car accident lawyer from Clark & Martino, P.A. can possibly represent you.
