AAJ Response to State of the Union

Washington, DC—The following is a statement from American Association for Justice (AAJ) President Gibson Vance in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address:

“As many as 98,000 people die every year from preventable medical errors, with countless more injured.  President Obama should direct his focus towards tackling this startling figure, not promoting efforts that could eliminate the legal rights of patients.”

As the world's largest trial bar, the American Association for Justice (formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America) works to make sure people have a fair chance to receive justice through the legal system when they are injured by the negligence or misconduct of others—even when it means taking on the most powerful corporations.
