Without laws protecting consumers’ rights to seek damages, corporations would have more power than elected officials. Having millions—or even billions—of dollars at their disposal, they could buy their way into or out of any situations they wanted. Corruption would go unchecked, and everyday consumers would suffer.
Our nation’s forefathers ingrained within our Constitution the right to hold negligent corporations and businesses accountable in a court of law. Without this right, America would be a very different place. Individuals injured or wronged by powerful entities would have no recourse for seeking justice and would essentially be on their own to settle civil disputes.
Imagine the victims of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico having to seek compensation for their destroyed businesses without any help from the government. Imagine the men, women, and children who fell sick because of contaminated groundwater in Hinkley, California, having no one to stand between them and Pacific Gas and Electric Company. To the benefit of these victims and other Americans, the law protects people harmed by many forms of corporate negligence in addition to defective products.
