Letter: Tort attorneys to blame for frivolous lawsuits

In regard to the letter from Vanessa Caranese (Oct. 1): Very good point, although a little harsh under the circumstances because the ones mentioned in the letter are not the ones truly responsible for the lawsuit.

The only ones that should be held responsible are the frackin’ tort attorneys that probably solicited the family while they were still grieving and looking for a place to lay blame. Tort law is one of the most lethal enemies of health care, and all other insurance industries. Advertising on TV belittles professionalism and used to be illegal. Now it’s just immoral, and borderlines malpractice and ethics violations, and is solely to blame for the infamous “Obamacare.”

To those who lost loved ones of the victims, I offer my sincerest condolences. I do know firsthand how devastating the vacancy left in one’s heart is, and also pray that nobody else attempts further benefit from your loss.
