Insurers' Big Scam

Insurers have been scamming Americans with calls for "tort reform" and claims of "crisis" for years. Insurance companies profit heavily when they can convince politicians to help them escape justice by passing laws capping damages. The Justice Capped report shows how despite the fact that Wisconsin medical malpractice insurance premiums are the lowest in the U.S., Wisconsin still has the 2nd highest health care insurance premiums in the U.S. However, the tide may be turning as officials are catching on to insurer's price gouging game. See what the Connecticut Attorney General, Michigan Insurance Commissioner, and Missouri Attorney General recently had to say.

Trial Lawyers & True Justice

Trial lawyers are demonized and stories of lawsuits and jury verdicts even made up, but the most frivilous claims are those "lawsuit abuse" claims of corporate America, which assert that our civil justice system is unfair and broken.

Trial lawyers get individual citizens justice in civil courts and today's news regarding WorldCom's Bernie Ebbers exemplifies this. There are thousands of smaller less high-profile cases in America, but a common theme among them is that individual citizens are represented by trial lawyers who seek justice and a fair trial before 12-peers. Far more often than not the civil justice system works extremely well, and in some cases where the criminal system appears to have failed civil cases have succeeded. For example, ask Ron Goldman's family about trial lawyers.
