It seems only fitting that consumer advocate and often times Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader has opened what is best described as a Personal Injury Museum even though he calls it the American Museum Of Tort Law. The American Museum of Tort Law seeks to increase citizen understanding of Tort Law - the law of wrongful injury - and the role it plays in protecting personal freedom, health and safety through the American civil justice system.
One of the best aspects of this museum is they separate fact from fiction and tell the true story of what happened that caused a certain action to gain notoriety. This explains why a jury decided to give what appeared to be an excessive amount of money to a woman who spilled coffee on herself while driving. It shows that she was not driving at the time and McDonalds was aware of the problem with their excessively hot coffee, but chose to do nothing about it.
They explain why the Pinto lawsuits and Corvair lawsuits were filed and won by diligent trial attorneys and why Ford waited so long to repair the defect in the Pinto even after they knew the problem was there and that people were dying as a result. The museum also has actual court documents from the first successful litigation against cigarette manufacturers that shows how a jury found the company's cigarette advertisements constituted an express warranty that its cigarettes were safe, and the company had breached that warranty.
Mr. Nadar has been a tireless consumer advocate and this museum is a natural extension of his life's efforts to protect consumers from irresponsible corporations. This is a place where the public can go and see the impact of harmful products and bad decisions and what happens when something isn't done and no one is there to help out the victims. The American Museum Of Tort Law in located in Connecticut.
