Missouri Legislature Again Tries To Restrict Citizen's Rights

Posted by Alvin Wolff | Feb 25, 2014 | 0 Comments

It's springtime in Jefferson City, Missouri and that means it's time  for our elected senators to play tort reform!  Once again our representatives are playing Russian Roulette with Missouri citizen's rights.  It is ironic that the elected officials must believe that voters who are smart enough to elect their representatives are not smart enough to sit on juries and evaluate cases competently.  For the legislature to tackle this subject over and over again is an insult to anybody who may end up as a random member of the community with a meritorious claim .  If caps for non economic damages are passed, many folks will be told that they're not hurt bad enough to bring a claim. 

Do we really believe that an injured retired person's pain is less than a wage earners?   

I know the reader here will not and is not concerned with my rights or my client's rights.  However, you should be concerned with your rights. The rights and restrictions you support today may be the sames rights and restrictions that will deny you or a loved one justice down the road.

Just remember one thing...nobody wakes up in the morning thinking that a piano is going to fall out of the sky and land on your head.  This is a random act that can happen to any of us.  If you are interested in protecting the community, your family and yourself please contact your representative right now and tell them that tort reform is a bad precedent and a bad idea.
