HAP is one of the strongest voices in support of medical and other legal liability reform. In each legislative session, HAP works with key like-minded business, insurance, and health organizations to advance a meaningful liability reform agenda.

Concerns about Pennsylvania’s legal system have been raised nationally. The commonwealth’s legal climate was ranked below 36 other states by the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform.

HAP and its allies are committed to improving the state's civil justice system by elevating awareness of key liability challenges and advocating for legal reform in the legislature and in the courts. Creating even-handed laws and courts will benefit all Pennsylvanians by attracting jobs and helping to ensure access to health care, while at the same time delivering justice to those who have been harmed by others.
