Tennessee Attorney Jim Higgins Discusses Impact on Tort Reform

Jim Higgins was recently interviewed with regard to the impact of tort reform on certainTennessee cases. In particular a jury recently returned a 1.5 million dollar wrongful death verdict for the parents of a child that died as a result of negligence. Under the new law the jury would be unable to give the parents this amount and the verdict would be reduced to what the politicians believe is fair. You can watch the interview here:
