Why Lawsuits Matter
Last week Walmart recalled baby bibs laden with toxic lead. The heavy metal can cause brain damage, neurological and other permanent injury. We have known about the toxicity of lead for decades.
The problem is too often, major corporations, pharmaceutical companies and health care providers allow dangerous conditions to exist and when the public is harmed simply deny any accountability.
Usually, it’s not the employees; its the management.
The good news is juries have the ability to tell corporations which take no accountability for their safety decisions to consider the safety of the public. Government agencies aren’t sufficiently staffed, are often industry insiders protecting the industry, not the public.
Often safety is easy and inexpensive but disregarded. Juries are the last line of defense for reasonable safety for the public.
