Will Missouri Bill Restrain The Legal Rights Of Mesothelioma Victims?
Will Missouri Bill Restrain The Legal Rights Of Mesothelioma Victims?: Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer. Some research suggests that people exposed to the carcinogenic substance asbestos may develop a greater proclivity towards mesothelioma.
It is due to this reason that patients with the condition move to file lawsuits against companies responsible for exposing them to the potential culprit. Where people suffering from this disease should be facilitated as much as possible, surprisingly laws such as the Missouri Bill may limit legal rights of mesothelioma patients.
The situation explained:
The bill being suggested would basically create hurdles and thus make it harder for people suffering from mesothelioma to file lawsuits against companies that have exposed them to the cancer causing substance. Upon becoming a law, this move will impose requirements that limit the legal rights of patients and thus it has been largely criticized. However, it comes as no surprise that the giants of the industry support the bill as it limits damages that they might have to pay out eventually to the people they have wronged.
All this is being done in the name of transparency, which is another ironic aspect of the worrisome situation. If the purpose really is to promote transparency, why not pass bills and make laws that forces organizations and companies to actively take responsibility for their actions? Why should they not have to bear at least the financial aspect of the consequences?
If transparency were really the end goal, the suffering of the people would be made to end by making it a law to protect workers and employees and making laws to make sure that they would not be exposed to substances which would prove to be life threatening in the long run. Instead, laws are being enacted that would potentially limit the rights of the very segment of society that is suffering. The situation is truly horrific and it is time to see what our leadership is coming to. Is gaining support and possible funding a strong enough reason to pass the Missouri bill which may limit legal rights of mesothelioma patients? Is it worth it?
