It means that instead of a payout that covers their medical bills and other damages (which would be covered by the mandatory insurance), your victims get whatever bankruptcy court can squeeze from you and nothing else.

I might be in favor of this if they were allowed to sell of your organs in cases where you can't pay for the damage you cause and you aren't insured.

Please read what I was responding too.

10 million times perhaps $5k/year would be $50 billion. I figure that's cheap enough. However, I'd go even further and put income restricts so only lower income individuals would qualify. (Under 250% of the poverty level.) And only those who maintain a 2.0 GPA.

My question was whose income should be counted? The childs (which is likely near 0 even for children of billionaires) or the parents? And if it should be the parents, what about parents that refuse to finance their child's education? Should the child be punished by being denied aid for having parents that are both rich and uncaring?

I can see how this would damage the company, but won't this actually help the customers? Right now they are relying on the locks to be secure. We do not know how many other people have discovered the flaw that makes them insecure. So is it better to leave the customers in the dark, or should they be notified so they can switch to a different lock supplier?
