This week, in honor of Constitution Day, the American Association for Justice highlighted 7 unique ways the 7th amendment of the Constitution helped bring about change.
What is the Seventh Amendment?
It states that our court system is different than almost anywhere in the world – common, every day people have the right to a trial by jury. This means that we have the right to be judged by a group of our fellow US citizens as opposed to just one judge. By keeping and protecting the right to having a trial by jury, we make sure serious disputes – about crime, injuries, money damages, are are decided by our peers.
And this amendment gives us, ordinary people, the ability to hold corporations, hospitals and otherimportant, powerful people accountable for their actions when they injure or harm people.
And that is exactly what we do as D.C. personal injury attorneys.
We help keep doctors, hospitals, HMOs, employers, and insurance companies accountable to bring about change while helping to change the life of someone who was seriously injured by a hospital, in an accident or on the job.
If you were seriously injured call us today at (202) 393-3320 for more information on how we can help you.
And if you’ve served on a jury – thank you.
