With the political cycle heading back into full swing I expect to hear
more and more about so the need to alter or "reform" the tort
law system. The modern day tort reform movement is funded and directed
entirely by insurance companies and large corporations. This is due in
part to the fact that they are the repeat players in the defendant's
role in the civil justice system - and are seeking to maximize profits
without regard to the rights of an injured person or their family.
Personal injury lawyers, are also repeat players in the civil justice
system as they represent people and families. The American Association
for Justice, a national group of injury law attorneys, has sponsored a website
People Over Profits, to educate the public concerning the conflict of interests between corporations
and insurance companies over the rights of injured citizens.
As a South Carolina
personal injury attorney James Snell is a member of the American Association for Justice and the
South Carolina Association for Justice. At the Law Office of James R.
Snell, Jr., LLC, we believe that everyone who has been injured due to
the fault or negligence of another, whether or not the responsible party
is an individual, corporation, physician, or the government, deserves
to have the wrongdoer held accountable and a right to a fair day in Court.
