Medical Malpractice Payouts 2012 Data | Infographic

What do you think about this type of infographic? Is it a useful communications tool? Does it get across the point that is trying to be made? It is published by the Cunningham Group, and designed by SteamDriven. "Using data culled from multiple sources we compiled an over view of the payouts for medical malpractice awards based on 2011 and 2012 data." Could the publisher please provide the sources for the data?

One interesting data point: 6 states account for 51.4% of all payouts: New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New Jersey, Florida, and California. But aren't those also the most populous states?
Please comment on how this data compares to what you've seen elsewhere. Link to larger version.
