Your Rights to Access to the Courts Are Under Multiple Attacks by Congress

This week, the U.S. House of Representatives is focused on attacking the right of injured people to sue the corporations and individuals responsible for their injury. There are four bills on the floor of the House that seek to achieve blows to civil rights, and the passage of any one of them into law would mean thousands of Americans lose their right to justice.  

Don’t be fooled by the names of these bills.  They all are meant to deny innocent victims of their right to hold corporations and individuals accountable for their actions. 

This body of legislation is a stunning assault on Americans’ rights to access the courts. By dismantling the legal framework that holds doctors, hospitals, and the Federal government itself accountable to those they care for, Congress is proving they care little about the lives and well-being of their constituents. We must hold our representatives accountable, and fight for what we know we deserve. Please contact your state representatives about these bills and let them know that voters are watching.
