The American Museum of Tort Law, founded by former Presidential candidate and longtime consumer advocate, Ralph Nader, recently opened in Winsted, Connecticut. The museum aims to present a different view of personal injury lawsuits than the one often held by the general public. The museum demonstrates that personal injury lawsuits are, at their core, a tool for the public good. “You know, people don’t see the benefits of tort law. Their cars are safer. Their foods are safer. They just live in an improved world,” museum co-founder Richard Newman told the New Yorker.
As practitioners of tort law, we, too, understand the societal value of personal injury cases. Without personal injury attorneys, the public could not protect itself from those insurance companies, manufacturers, and others who place profits above all other concerns. Click here
