Attorney says civil remedies drive product safety improvements.

In a column in the Asian Journal (7/24), Atty. C. Joe Sayas, Jr. wrote, "Legal remedies protect the lowly consumer against big companies who put profits over the public good. The factual history of the American civil justice system shows how the courage of these consumers and their attorneys who waged these legal fights…advanced the cause of product safety." Sayas presents several product safety "cases compiled by the American Association for Justice," commenting "it is difficult to imagine how these safety changes could have been made if the manufacturers of these products were not held accountable in our civil courts."

Thomas Jefferson said to Thomas Paine in 1789, "I consider trial by jury the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution."  He recognized that access to the court system was needed, too, in order to hold private entities accountable for the harms they commit to people.  I am very lucky to be part of a profession that  gives a voice to people who otherwise could not be heard.
