The Tort System

Tort actions were created as a non-legislative way to compensate wrongs and harm done by one person to another's person, property or other protected interests, e.g. physical injury or reputation. The tort system, first, tries to compensate victims for their losses. Secondly, it tries to set an example of liability to avoid future harm or accidents. Read more:

The Right to Civil Justice

Corporations are responsible for thousands of preventable deaths, injuries, and diseases as well as enormous economic costs to workers, consumers and the environment. The civil justice system offers victims the only way to deter companies from engaging in wrongdoing.

Protecting Rights

As Americans, we have a democratic right to civil justice and trial by jury. No matter what propaganda big businesses issue about tort reform, victims deserve a chance to obtain justice from a judge and jury.

Statutes of Repose vs. Statutes of Limitations

Many assume that if one is wronged the ability to seek remedy will always be open-ended. This isn’t the case. Often legal proceedings must abide by a statute of repose, which limits a victim’s timeframe for recourse. And can nullify any legal responsibility that the wrongdoer or corporation has done to the victim.
