Tell Congress To Protect Our Rights!

Arthur C. Kosieradzki - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyMarch 08, 2017

Having represented injured people for nearly 30 years has allowed me the opportunity to see first hand how important it is that average citizens in this country have the right to hold corporations and insurance companies accountable in a court of law. Without accountability safety is seriously compromised. I’m writing this blog to tell you that some in Congress are pushing legislation right now that will severely restrict that right in cases of medical malpractice and nursing home abuse.

And that’s only the beginning.

This bill (and several more like it) will rig the system against individuals like you and tip the scales in favor of powerful corporate defendants.

Of course, those pushing these proposed laws - all backed by major business interests - are telling Americans that these measures are necessary to deter greedy patients from exploiting doctors and health care for personal gain. They say that limitations on lawsuits will keep healthcare costs down by reducing the amount of money paid out on medical malpractice claims and insurance.

But we can tell you from personal experience that the hundreds of Minnesotans that come to us every year with serious injuries are not “greedy,” and their claims are not “frivolous.” In fact, several studies make clear that preventable medical errors are now a leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease and cancer.

Legislation like this will do nothing to address the real problem, the epidemic of medical errors and nursing home abuse, but instead increase corporate profits while stripping you of your rights.

We need to send a strong message to Congress that these anti-civil justice bills must fail. If you agree that it is unacceptable for Congress to eliminate your rights to hold corporations accountable, we urge you to contact your Minnesota Congressperson and Senators today. Tell your representative to stand up for you and your family and vote NO on offensive anti-civil justice legislation.

As easy way to find the contact information for your elected officials in Washington is to visit this link posted by Take Justice Back. You will also find a sample letter on this website that you can send to your Representative and Senators as well.

Please take action today! As someone who has had firsthand experience seeking justice for others and can assure you your actions will make a difference and you will help save lives. If you have any questions about this matter or any other legal matter feel free to contact me directly at 952-469-2288 or art@knowyourrights.com. I thank you for your attention to this matter and all your help in preserving the rights of all Americans to access the civil justice system.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.
