The 7th Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the right of Americans to a trial by jury. However, big business and insurance companies continue their efforts to strip away those rights. These proponents of tort reform undermine the ability of victims to share their story with a jury and allowing the jury to return a verdict. In Texas, the Tort Reform Act of 2003 placed a cap of $250,000 on “non-economic damages.” In emergency room medical malpractice cases, one must prove “malice” which is virtually impossible. The result is that Texas lawyers will not touch a malpractice case thereby making it is nearly impossible for a victim to seek justice.

Here is a story of one such case.

    Personal injury cases are tough. In many instances, the plaintiffs are so desperate for money while their suit is being settled; between the medical bills and missing hours of labor that they end up going back to work. Upon returning, their boss will say that they are no longer injured or were never really seriously injured. Many times this results in a minimal payout which is a lose/lose for everyone. More and more people are consulting with lawsuit funding firms so they aren't forced back to work and don't get caught up in this trap.
