Large damages awards in tort litigation have
to be paid by someone. If the defendant is
insured, then insurance companies foot the
bill. Ultimately, though, high insurance rates
are passed on to consumers of goods and

might be higher risks of medical malpractice
and dangerous products. Do you believe that
this trade-off is real? Why or why not?
