Despite myths generated about the "lawsuit crisis" in America, the numbers show that the number of lawsuits filed in the country are actually declining.

According to the Justice Department under George W. Bush, the number of personal injury cases in U.S. District Courts from 1985-2003 fell by 79%. Lawsuits in state courts are declining as well, showing a 31% decrease from 1992-2001, according to Bureau of Justice Statics.

The numbers tell the true story and show that the myths about a "lawsuit crisis" are merely a vehicle for big businesses and insurance companies to insulate themselves from laws meant to protect Americans.
