Jere Beasley on federal preemption of state laws

| Medical Device Litigation, Drug Lawsuits

There is an effort currently underway to remove the rights of consumers to seek justice through the court system when they are injured by a product or drug. The issue is preemption, and it would essentially provide companies with immunity from lawsuits despite negligent action on their part. A recent report published by the American Association for Justice (AAJ), explains that federal preemption would circumvent state law by enacting federal policies that override state laws. Beasley Allen’s Founding Shareholder, Jere L. Beasley, addresses this critical issue.
