Access to justice and accountability through our courts has been under attack by powerful corporate interests and the insurance industry for over 50 years. Their goal is to evade accountability when they produce unsafe products, engage in shoddy home construction, or injure and kill our citizens. The consequences for all of us cannot be understated, because when no one is accountable, no one is safe.
Public dialogue over the nature of Nevada’s civil justice system is colored by misinformation, distortions and out and out lies, spread by insurance companies, big businesses and the front groups they fund. By manufacturing and promoting a non-existent lawsuit crisis, they seek to pressure policymakers to insulate them from liability when their dangerous actions harm or kill innocent people. As we know all too well, when Americans’ access to justice is denied, unscrupulous insurance companies, Wall Street banks, contractors, reckless drivers, dangerous hospitals, and other wrongdoers can get away with the worst.
At Canepa, Riedy, Abele, & Fischer, we are committed to advocating for the civil justice system, whether that means taking on powerful corporate interests, opposing unconstitutional attacks on the civil justice system or fighting harmful legislation that limits Nevadans’ access to the courts. We are committed to strengthening the civil justice system to ensure deserving individuals can get justice and wrongdoers, particularly large corporations and insurance companies, are held accountable. We oppose efforts to weaken basic legal protections which would further stack the deck against Nevadans, and we have worked tirelessly in the Nevada Legislature for the past 20 years seeking to uphold our citizens’ right to seek justice in this state.
All citizens benefit when individuals have a fair chance to get justice through our civil justice system. Our commitment to justice seeks to ensure basic fairness, and provide that every person is on a level playing field in the courtroom and able to hold wrongdoers accountable.
