As the Senate prepares to vote on healthcare reform, the American Association of Justice has launched new advertisements around Capitol Hill to draw attention to victims of medical malpractice. The ad campaign uses statistics and victim’s stories to illustrate why it is crucial for Congress to protect the legal rights of victims. This week, ads were placed throughout Union Station, a major thoroughfare for Capitol Hill workers. The ads draw attention to the fact that every year, 98,000 patients are killed by preventable medical errors. The AAJ also took out a one page ad in Roll Call to gain the attention of congressional workers. As the Senate vote on healthcare reform draws near, please contact your U.S. Senators to ask them to protect patients rights by voting no on any measures designed to limit the legal rights of injured patients.
