Our parents teach us to accept responsibility when we break something or hurt someone and do what we can to make the situation right. However, today’s corporate executives frequently have very different morals. Only rarely will a company have a corporate policy of accepting responsibility when they cause harm. Much more often, corporations deny responsibility, hide documents and evidence, and will use their unlimited budgets and massive insurance policies to hire armies of corporate lawyers and consultants to fight a war of attrition on those who they harm. They now pay their lawyers up to and more than a $1,000/hour, and yet cry a shrill note to politicians to limit their financial responsibility to those they harm.
The financial toll of a significant injury or wrongful death can be devastating to a whole family, physically, financially, and emotionally. When you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one due to wrongful conduct, negligence or defective product of another person or company, you need a lawyer by your side. When you fail to pursue a case against those who have injured you or a family member, you effectively punish yourself. Financial compensation can very well save you from years of future deprivation, and it relieve the financial burden imposed on you and your family that you were forced to endure because of others.
You Can Help Others
Our justice system very rarely sends anyone to prison for injuring another through a defective product or wrongful conduct.
As imperfect as our legal system may be, where the wrongful conduct causes great harm, justice and accountability may only be had through imposing responsibility for monetary damages.
Imposing financial responsibility in one case can change conduct to the benefit of all in a community.
Some examples of positive changes caused by holding companies responsible and accountable for their actions include equipping cars with seatbelts and airbags, designing safer baby cribs which do not allow babies’ heads to become trapped in the slats, limiting the discharge of toxic materials into our air and water, and labeling of products to reveal potentially hazardous ingredients.
Citizens share a responsibility not just to seek compensation for themselves, but also seek justice and accountability for loved ones, our coworkers, and our community when harm and injustice occur.
Pursuing accountability and responsibility of the culpable person, product, or company helps to discourage the conduct and hopefully protect others.
