“It would never happen to me.”
This is the assumption of everyone who votes to limit the rights of the injured to receive compensation when someone else causes the injury. It has to be. With few exceptions there can be no other explanation for working people.
In a recent People Magazine ad, page 74 of April 27, 2009 I read these words from 14 year old Rachel Kramer, from the day before she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Here complete statement is: “It would never happen to me. I’ve got bigger things to worry about, like homework, friends and all the cute upper classmen.”
Rachel Karmer, 14, the day before she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
It’s the confidence you have that it, meaning malpractice of any sort, will never happen to you. I hope it doesn’t and I hope if and when it does that you aren’t one of the unfortunate ones who die or live a life altered by the preventable errors of the professionals you trust.
But if it does, ask yourself, will you be willing to accept that no exception can be made for you?
Will you be willing to lose your life savings?
Will you be willing to watch a loved one die without the resources to financially support them?
Will you be willing to watch the responsible party go on without a change in their life, while your family suffers the consequences?
If you can answer yes, then by all means vote for tort reform; but if that something happens to you, just don’t bother going see an attorney. It’s not that we won’t care, we will, but there is nothing we can do for you. While doctors may threaten to quit medicine, lawyers don’t threaten anything; we just won’t take your “case”.
