Each Year on July 4th, we Celebrate America’s Independence Day, and the Rights and Freedoms that Make this Country Great
July 4th marks the day Americans celebrate the birth of our nation. On this day, we commemorate the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and the brave men and women who decided to take a stand against oppression and abuses of their rights and freedoms.
Today, the fight for our rights lives on. One of these rights, that national plaintiffs firms like Waters Kraus & Paul fight to maintain and defend, is the right for everyone to have equal access to the court system. This is an extremely important right. It allows for individuals, unjustly hurt by big interests, to receive compensation for their pain and suffering, and to hold corporations responsible for their actions.
Why is Equal Access to the Court System Important?
The right to have equal access to the court system guarantees that each individual has their day to be heard in court. Access to the court system also allows us to shape business practices and set standards for a safer working environment. By penalizing corporations who don’t take proper safety measures, the court system ensures that negligent disregard for the health of employees and consumers will not be tolerated.
Holding corporations accountable through the court system has also helped shape legislation. For example, lawsuits for birth defects due to pesticide exposure have led to regulations on pesticide use. Lawsuits holding corporations accountable for failing to protect victims from asbestos exposure and the pleural mesothelioma that followed have led to tighter controls on asbestos use.
However, the fight for our rights is not over. While work environments have become safer and consumer protection laws have become stronger, there is still room to improve. Firms like Waters Kraus & Paul continue to fight for enhanced protections such as a complete ban on asbestos to ensure that no one else’s life is cut short by pleural mesothelioma.
