A new documentary film entitled Hot Coffee tells the true story of the McDonald's Hot Coffee case. The film also tells the story of how the civil justice system has been under heavy attack by big business for over 25 years. They launched a public relations campaign starting in the mid-80's and continuing over the last two decades to convince the public that we have out of control juries, too many frivolous lawsuits and a civil justice system that needs reforming. They have used anecdotes, half-truths and sometimes out and out lies in their efforts, for one purpose - to put limits on people's access to the court system, the one and only place where an average citizen can go toe to toe with those with money and power and still have a shot at justice.
Uninsured motorist coverage protects you if you are injured by the negligence of a driver with no liability insurance. In Pennsylvania, one out of every ten licensed drivers does not have liability insurance! That's why you should double check your automobile insurance policy, or policies, to make sure that you are protected against drivers with no insurance coverage.
