    So I'm wondering if tort reforms, like those in Texas and elsewhere would actually save this guy money if someone who was adversely affected by taking the wrong medications or killed by it tried to sue him? Maybe Beth Janicek can answer for Texas. I'd like know what other lawyers in states with tort reforms say about this type of a claim.
