“A Civil Action” – A Wonderful Film About Personal Injury Law
I recently saw the 1998 film "A Civil Action" which I thought was amazing. The movie is based loosely on Massachusetts personal injury attorney Jan Schlichtman’s fight against a factory (and its lawyers) in Woburn, Massachusetts which allegedly dumped chemicals into a river in Woburn. Children in the town became sick and eventually died after drinking the contaminated water. Attorney Schlichtman is played expertly by John Travolta. The film is inspirational and evocative. Check it out.
