Q: Aren’t lawyers fighting this legislation just so they can make more money?

Missouri citizens are fighting this legislation for two reasons: 1) so that Missouri workers are treated fairly, and 2) because the real goal of this legislation is to shift the cost of care from the companies that poisoned workers to Missouri taxpayers. This legislation will deny compensation to thousands of victims of leukemia, lung cancer, metal poisoning, asbestosis, mesothelioma, and other deadly diseases caused by workplace toxins. But someone will still have to pay for their medical care, and if responsibility is shifted to the workers’ compensation system, the burden will fall on us.
