How does tort law relate to health care?

hello junaitis: The most prevalent claim by the insurance industry, backed up by the AMA, is that malpractice suits against doctors force them to order many unnecessary tests, in order to avoid negligence claims. This runs up the cost of medical services. Also, the supposedly large verdicts in malpractice cases drive up insurance premiums to Drs. , which are being passed through in higher charges for medical services. There are volumes of research to the contrary done by Lawyers groups.
