A renewed push for tort reform in Pennsylvania has many fans in the insurance world. The Keystone State is one of the few in which one defendant can be held fully liable for the actions of another in a civil lawsuit. But that would all change now that lawmakers are poised to resurrect legislation known as the "Fair Share" act, which rewrites how liability is apportioned civil cases. Kari Kissinger, government affairs director for the Insurance Agents and Brokers Group, tells Insurance Journal's Ken St. Onge that the measure is long overdue, a benefit to businesses and would help drive down insurance costs. But plaintiffs' attorney say the measure would actually drive up legal costs and could even open a slew of potential new lawsuits and claims against insurance agents.
