To the Editor: I agree with Drs Kassirer and Cecil1 about the need for more consistent standards in toxic tort law. In malpractice tort law, however, the standards that are typically used are even less valid. Can Kassirer and Cecil offer a suggestion as to how such evidentiary standards can be developed to apply to medical malpractice litigation?
