by David E. Bernstein, J.D.
As currently constituted, the tort system in the United States has induced distortions that have resulted in a crisis in medical litigation with escalating awards, as well as in product liability. In Part I (Journal of Medical Practice Management 2004; Vol.20#2: 72?76), the author outlined his views of the structural defects in the American system and contrasted it with the experience in Britain and the major commonwealth nations. In particular, he stressed the inefficiencies of the civil jury system.
