Senate Bill 415 limits Georgian’s rights while increasing insurance companies’ rights and corporate powers. The bill would affect about 15 areas of law, including trucking, aviation, municipal law, tort law, jury trials, rules of evidence, product liability, premises liability, asbestos law, and more. In essence, the bill would drastically change civil law in Georgia.
Early next week, the Senate will be voting on Senate Bill 415, which benefits insurance companies and big businesses, but is detrimental to Georgians. If passed, trial lawyers would no longer be able to argue the monetary value of a victim’s pain and suffering to a jury. The bill would prevent judges from having the discretion to make decisions based on the facts and circumstances of each case. It would also protect corporations that carelessly and knowingly introduce poisonous products on the market.
The bill would limit your Constitutional rights in a civil court of law to hold those who might hurt your loved one accountable in a drunk and driving accident. It would also make it more difficult to sue landowners for injuries caused by a third party. Below is more information about Senate Bill 415 provided by the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA).
We urge you to contact your senators today and ask them to vote “NO” on Senate Bill 415.
