According to the US Chamber's Institute for Legal Reform, Kentucky ranks 39th in the nation for its legal liability climate.
Legal reform is a growing point of concern for all Americans. Tort litigation costs Americans about $250 billion annually, at an average cost of $825 per person. Frivolous cases in civil courts make justice difficult to achieve for the deserving and far too expensive for everyone else. The problem is a national one, but Kentucky’s climate is worse than most other states. In fact, Kentucky’s neighbors like Indiana and Tennessee have already enacted legal reform. Personal injury lawyers have placed a target squarely on Kentucky’s businesses and heath care community because our legal system encourages their predatory lawsuits.
