Just Doing My Part



Take Action Now!


Dear Patients,

New York State is currently in a health care crisis that threatens all of our abilities as patients to get affordable healthcare. The threat comes from a tort system in New York that has run out of control. Jury awards have risen dramatically over the years and are often out of proportion to the nature of the injuries. The problem is only getting worse.

I support tort reform that retains our rights to seek reasonable compensation when injured by a negligent act, but the system must prevent excessively high awards for pain and suffering that is limited in intensity and duration.

I call on you to take action and contact your local representative in the state assembly and ask them to support liability reform. I have pre-printed, addressed, and stamped envelopes; all you need to do is sign.

Please become involved in this grass roots effort to save New York from an impending health care implosion and in doing so, help to lower health care costs for the majority.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
