This is from my American Association for Justice about legislation in Congress that seeks to prevent injured individuals from getting properly compensated, in order to purportedly help the doctors and the corporations.
However, the data from states like Texas, that limited the rights of individuals to be compensated more than fifteen years ago in hopes of saving costs, is clear that taking away an individuals’ right to get proper compensation for their injuries does not save much, if any, money on doctor’s malpractice or others’ insurance policies.
Insurance is the mechanism by which our society has opted to spread the cost of individual’s injuries over the society in general. Taking away people’s right to sue and be compensated merely makes that injured person bear the cost effects of the injury done by some third party, without any substantial savings to the Defendant. –
This week, Congress will vote on legislation that will rig the system against individuals like you and tip the scales of justice in favor of powerful corporate defendants. We need to send a strong message to Congress that these anti-civil justice bills must fail. Take Action
