Jurors’ Opinions of Health Care

Jurors’ Opinions of Health Care

Magnus Research Consultants has surveyed 473 jury eligible citizens regarding their attitudes on the quality of health care in the U.S. The 473 citizens were surveyed in conjunction with their participation as mock jurors on medical negligence cases. Of those surveyed, 67% agreed or agreed strongly that the quality of health care in this country is declining, with 33% disagreeing or disagreeing strongly with this statement. Given the current “medical malpractice crisis,” it is interesting to note that the majority of citizens are concerned they are recipients of less than excellent health care. Our research points out that media accounts of the reported medical malpractice crisis have largely overlooked these important opinions of the voting public. These opinions have obvious ramifications in the courtroom, as well as political arenas.
