Bruce Brusavich Discusses Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act in Daily Journal

Partner Bruce Brusavich was featured in the article, “Medical malpractice lawyers ranks have shriveled” published in Daily Journal discussing the impact of the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) on tort lawyers for the last 40 years and the attempts to reform its policies. MICRA remains a grievance to tort lawyers who are trying to help get the maximum compensation for victims and their families, saying it wrongly values human life at $250,000 and blocks legitimate lawsuits. After years of defeat, tort lawyers are pushing a ballot to reform MICRA in an attempt to revitalize the tort communities across generational lines.

“I’ve seen lawyers that handle medical malpractice shrink to just a small handful”, said Mr. Brusavich, who began his career as a malpractice attorney after MICRA’s passage. “The law prevents victims who can’t claim lost wages – the elderly and families of children that die – from even getting a hearing.”

This may be the first major fight over tort reform, but it will set the standard for plaintiff’s litigators to work together in order to achieve success in impacting major policy changes.



    The entire AgnewBrusavich team took over everything and were a tremendous help. The insurance company was dealt with, the settlement was received, and I was very pleased with the results. I would not hesitate to recommend AgnewBrusavich to anyone.

    The team at Agnew Brusavich cannot come more highly recommended. If you should have some sort of personal injury case, particularly if you are a cyclist, I cannot think of a better team to handle a personal injury case.

    Agnew and Brusavich helped me so much after an injury from a car accident. I was shaken up from the experience but they made me feel so comfortable and truly showed they cared about my case.

    I was referred to Agnew Brusavich, and after meeting with Gerry I felt much better. He and his team handled all the communication between the insurance companies and opposing attorneys and kept me up-to-date throughout the process.
