It now looks likely that Florida lawmakers will at least consider doing something about medical malpractice tort reform this year, but there are differing ideas about what should be done.
One group that’s pushing for reform is called “Patients for Fair Compensation”. It’s based in Alpharetta, Georgia, a state that’s also considering changes to its medical malpractice laws. The group is chaired by Rick Jackson. He’s also chairman and chief executive officer of Jackson Healthcare, the nation's third largest healthcare staffing company.
