During the recent hurricanes, Dr. Knox wrote a book about Senator John Edwards, who made more than $60 million dollars as a medical malpractice plaintiff's attorney. He set up his own publishing company and distributed more than a thousand copies of his book free to medical and political groups in Northeast Florida. Dr. Knox is hoping to use Senator Edwards as an example "to illustrate why we need Amendment 3."
Dr. Knox has been actively promoting Florida Amendment 3, which limits the amount trial lawyers can collect in medical liability cases. While researching the various candidates' political views on tort reform, he was disturbed by information he found out about Vice-Presidential candidate John Edwards. "I couldn't believe it", Knox said. "He made about $60 million in a ten year period as a medical malpractice plaintiff's attorney in North Carolina". One example is Campbell vs. Pitt County Hospital, where the jury awarded $6.5 million. Edwards take was more than $3 million. Dr. Knox wanted to get the word out about "the amount trial lawyers collect in these cases".
Dr. Knox wrote a book about Edwards and set up his own publishing company to distribute more than a thousand copies of his book free to medical and political groups in Northeast Florida. Dr. Knox is hoping to use Senator Edwards as an example "to illustrate why we need to vote YES on Amendment 3. Amendment 3 will let injured patients keep more of an award in a medical liability case, discourage trial lawyers from filing frivolous lawsuits, and encourage quality doctors to keep practicing in Florida."
The book, entitled "Senator Edwards and the Destruction of American Healthcare" is now available on amazon.com.
