A Decline in Tort Lawsuits

//A Decline in Tort Lawsuits

A-Decline-in-Tort-LawsuitsA recent article in the Wall Street Journal reports that data collected by the National Center for State Courts reveals a decline of tort lawsuits. According to the article, fewer than 2 in 1,000 people filed tort lawsuits in 2015 compared to 10 in 1,000 in 1993. Some of the reasons cited for the decline are “state restrictions on litigation, the increasing cost of bringing suits, improved auto safety and a long campaign by businesses to turn public opinion against plaintiffs and their lawyers.” If the cost of bringing suits are deterring you from taking on cases, contact us to increase your firm’s productivity and decrease the costs of running your firm.
