One thing you often hear repeated at A Case for Justice is that – aside from voting – the best way to create systemic change is through civil legal action. That is why the law firms in our network practice civil litigation on a contingency-fee basis that pushes negligent institutions to pay the people who have harmed by their products or policies. Civil litigation has enormous power to change corporate behavior and even change laws.
However, not every injury is right for civil litigation. This does not discredit or diminish what you’ve been through: we hear you and we believe you. It also doesn’t mean that you may not have other kinds of legal options, such as criminal action, or other means of getting help.
If we haven’t been able to get you started or you’re coming to us for a situation that doesn’t involve institutional negligence of some sort, please don’t give up! Below are some resources that may help you secure other types of legal representation or guide you to other ways of using your story to make a change.
