AAJ protecting veterans


My American Association for Justice (a national group of plaintiff personal injury attorneys) just shared this –

Fighting for Those who Fight for Us

Servicemembers and veterans are often targeted by the unscrupulous and, despite their service to their country, are frequently denied the constitutional rights they fight to protect.

Though Congress has passed laws to protect the rights of servicemembers and veterans, legal maneuvers have left many unable to hold wrongdoers accountable when a bank forecloses upon a deployed soldier’s home, when an employer fires a reservist who’s called to active duty, when a commanding officer rapes a subordinate, or when exposure to a toxic substance on the job causes cancer.

When our institutions fail to protect the rights of men and women who make up America’s first line of defense, the civil justice system has proven to be the last line of defense.
