Medical Malpractice Liability Reform and Attorney Incomes

Perry, John J.  2019. “Medical Malpractice Liability Reform and Attorney Incomes.”  The Earnings Analyst, 16: 101-112.


There has been a longstanding interest in the impact of medical malpractice liability climates on health labor markets, expenditures, outcomes, and insurance markets. Little empirical research has investigated the effect of medical malpractice climates on the “other” side: attorneys. This paper seeks to address this weakness in the literature and investigates the impact of state-level medical malpractice reforms on attorney incomes using single and double-differences approaches. The results suggest that medical malpractice reforms are associated with material impacts on attorney incomes.
