I have a new client that is an OB/GYN that moved to Texas from Dade County, Florida.
She moved here primarily because the insurance was unaffordable and insurance reimbursements were not enough to make a viable business with her overhead.

Texas has instituted tort reform and limited punitive damages. Punitive damages do not make the damaged party 'whole'. In fact, they have nothing to do with the damaged party.

This doctor's insurance costs were 25% of what she was charged in Dade county.

'nuff said.
