ABSTRACT
The article reports that tort reform will not reduce medical costs and improve health care in the U.S., as argued by Ruqaiijah Yearby, associate professor in the University of Buffalo Law School in New York. Yearby asserts that instead of a legislation that aim to reduce medical malpractice suits, the government should address the proliferation of unnecessary medical errors that victimize hundreds of thousands of patients every year. She claims that health care reform efforts do not address the far-reaching problem of medical errors.
