Are Victims’ Rights Being Whittled Away by the Courts and Lawmakers?

car crash laws, changes to the law of joint and several liability of negligence, damage caps in medical negligence cases, etc.) have whittled away at victims’ rights to recover damages for injuries sustained due to no fault of their own.

“I agree with my colleague’s statement that one of the beauties of our civil justice system is that, by compensating victims, tort law creates incentives for safety and changes in behavior that benefit all of us. I also agree that our tort laws need to be strengthened, not weakened, in order to protect the rights of vicitms,” says Landau.
