Tort reform is something that many in central Illinois may have probably heard of. The subject is not about finding new ways to bake a strawberry delicacy. It has to do with the legal remedies that may be available to individuals to receive essential compensation after suffering catastrophic injury.
Supporters of tort reform tend to be looking for ways to scale back the ability of victims to hold those who are responsible accountable for the damage and disability caused. Sometimes the reform effort might seek to block victims from seeking justice through the civil court system. In other instances, changes sought might involve putting limits on how much compensation can be sought.
