PROPOSITION 213 STOPS REWARDING
California law allows felons convicted of resisting a peace officer and causing serious injury or death to the peace officer to sue a city, county or anyone else who gets in their way and accidentally injures the felon fleeing from that crime. The same goes for crimes such as carjacking, ''drive-by" shooting resulting in murder, multiple hate crimes and many others. Proposition 213 stops rewarding criminal behavior.
PROPOSITION 213 REFORMS AN UNFAIR SYSTEM
THAT REWARDS LAWBREAKERS AND PUNISHES
THOSE WHO PLAY BY THE RULES
Under Proposition 213, every driver involved in an accident could recover their medical and out-of-pocket expenses. Proposition 213 says ''NO" to additional big money awards that drunk drivers, uninsured motorists and their attorneys go after when these lawbreakers are in an accident with an insured driver--even if they also cause the accident!
PROPOSITION 213 TAKES AWAY TRIAL LAWYERS'
INCENTIVE TO SUE FOR OUTRAGEOUS
AWARDS TO LINE THEIR OWN POCKETS
One-third of every dollar awarded for ''pain and suffering" goes to attorneys, and they want to ensure the most lucrative of all injury awards isn't taken from them.
PROPOSITION 213 BENEFITS CONSUMERS
BY MAKING INSURANCE MORE
AFFORDABLE FOR EVERYONE
Law-abiding drivers pay additional premiums to protect themselves from uninsured drivers. Eliminating huge monetary awards for irresponsible drivers will save $327 million each year!
