The civil justice system was designed to handle disputes in a fair and timely manner. Unfortunately, the system is clogged with lawsuits driven by plaintiffs’ attorneys who see big payouts.
It can take years for plaintiffs with legitimate claims to get justice, and they often receive less compensation because of excessive attorneys’ fees and other expenses. For defendants, the large expenses and legal fees associated with litigation mean that it can be easier and, unfortunately, less expensive to settle than fight even frivolous claims in court.
The civil justice system is important and should benefit consumers, not lawyers.
