Spotlight: “Tort Reform” - A Non-Issue for Small Businesses

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

"In its 2012 survey, National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB) small business members ranked "Costs and Frequency of Lawsuits/Threatened Lawsuits" at number 71 out of a possible 75 issues, a lower rank than how to use Twitter. Liability issues have hardly appeared on lists of actual business concerns (as opposed to views expressed by paid lobbyists and other hired staff.) Small businesses virtually always put issues like "lawsuits" "liability" "tort reform" or the cost of "liability insurance" at the bottom of any list of concerns -- that is, if they mention them at all. They usually don't."
