Today I finished reading a book called The King of Torts written by John Grisham, it was a shortened version with a few questions in the end – to give us food for thought. The story is basically about a lawyer who makes unfavourable out-of-court settlements for his clients to earn himself a lot of money. The thing is that he forces people to take money and keep quiet about a drug – which affected them badly, hurt them or their close relatives.
And the question in the end – if you knew that pharmaceutical company was responsible for the death of someone in your family, would you:
- accept a lot of money in compensation and ask no questions?
- refuse compensation and try to take the pharmaceutical company to court?
