President Of Georgia Trial Lawyers Association Disagrees With George Will Column

In an letter to the editor in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (1/19) Fred Orr, the president of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association wrote, “George Will’s column ‘Litigious ‘cult of safety’ puts society at risk’…contained grossly distorted examples of lawsuits and misconstrued the fundamentals of our Constitution and America’s appreciation for basic safety.” Orr said, “The Constitution ensures that all people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system, even when taking on powerful corporations.” He added, “Try imagining a world in which injured persons were not permitted to seek compensation from the responsible party: children would still be wearing flammable pajamas, certain cars would still explode from minor impacts, unsafe pharmaceutical products would still be killing hundreds of thousands, the pipes in our homes would still be insulated with cancer-causing asbestos, no one would know the true dangers of cigarettes and business practices of unscrupulous corporations would be commonplace.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
