Lawful Constraints on Victims Decreased California Physicians’ Malpractice Premiums

In 1988, California residents passed the most effective insurance rate rule in the country by means of insurance reform Proposition 103, a ballot proposal ratified by the voters and conceived by Consumer Watchdog creator Harvey Rosenfield. This law led to a rate halt, a rate discount, and rigorous control that decreased premiums in every area of insurance—as well as medical malpractice.

Ex-Governor Jerry Brown, who authorized the MICRA law, maintained on June 13, 1993 that he would not propose it for the country. He stated that in the interval he observed thus far another insurance disaster and discovered that insurance corporation materialism, not use of the legal system by injured consumers was accountable for unnecessary premiums.
