John Uustal’s premise in Corporate Serial Killers: Boosting Profits with the New License to Kill (Sutton Hart Q2 2018) is that America’s best-known corporations knowingly keep dangerous and deadly products on the market if the profit to be made exceeds the anticipated cost of paying off the maimed and families of the dead.
Couldn’t happen, right? Wrong!
Author Uustal cites scores of cases where this Satan’s calculation led to horrific tragedies for families across the United States. And, Congress shields those corporations from punishment with laws packaged as “consumer protection” that are in reality, just licenses to kill.
Uustal’s rock solid credibility derives from decades of holding corporations accountable as a well-known national trial attorney and founder of top Florida serious injury and wrongful death law firm Kelley-Uustal.
With cumulative jury verdicts against corporate malfeasors in the hundreds of millions, Uustal brings Corporate Serial Killers to life with stories straight from the headlines as he exposes deadly misconduct on the part of:
- Tobacco Companies
- Healthcare Firms
- Insurance Companies
- Consumer Product Manufacturers
- Pharmaceutical Corporations
Is this all exaggeration? You’ll wish it were as John shares a General Motors memo to management showing how a $2.20 per car savings could be achieved by skipping fire protection on a poorly placed gas tank and that savings compared with paying off injured victims made good business sense. GM chose profits.
John represented the family that watched their son burn to death in a GM car after a nominal bump to the rear of their GM car. It was one of the largest jury verdicts in U.S. history as GM had to face their own memo, that both they and their lawyers had concealed.
As corporations kill and Congress enacts laws limiting their responsibility and accountability, John – especially with this book – works tirelessly to turn the tables in favor of the victims of Corporate Serial Killers. Available at bookstores online and off in early 2018.
