We are relentless on your behalf.
The Doctors Company has an unmatched record of supporting medical liability reform and of vigorously advocating in defense of the practice of good medicine. We were founded on these principles, and we have worked tirelessly for more than 30 years to achieve a better balance between the rights of plaintiffs and defendants. We continue to seek tort reform that protects physicians against the seemingly limitless expansion of potential liability without compromising fair redress for those with real injuries.

The Doctors Company’s state and federal political action committees (DOCPACs) support candidates for elected office that favor medical liability reform in their respective states and in Congress. By contributing to a DOCPAC, you can help us in the fight to protect the practice of good medicine.
California’s Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) has served as a model for medical liability reform nationwide. See our briefing on the history, major provisions, and benefits of MICRA.
