The Texas medical liability reforms that were enacted in 2003 stopped the exodus of doctors who were leaving the state or retiring because of high medical liability insurance costs. The result has been improved access to high-quality health care throughout the state, and similar caps have now been enacted in many other states.
That's from the Houston Chronicle link.

The Austin American Statesman reported that Department of Insurance data shows medical malpractice claims, including lawsuits, resolved in a year fell by nearly two-thirds between 2003 and 2011 to 450. The average payout declined 22 percent to about $199,000.
That's from the Insurance Journal link.
