Your Right To Trial By Jury
Texas Personal Injury Trial Lawyers
If you have been injured in an accident, it is important to know your rights. While nothing can prepare you for the pain, stress and shock of a car accident, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you pursue your rights, including your right to a trial by jury as you seek the fair and just compensation you deserve.
At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, our attorneys have more than 130 years of combined personal injury experience. Four of our six attorneys are board-certified in personal injury trial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, which means they have passed additional testing and demonstrated their ability to effectively handle complex personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.
The Importance Of Your Seventh Amendment Rights
The Seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution codifies the right to a jury trial in certain civil trials, including personal injury and wrongful death cases. Despite this, corporate interests have been successful in chipping away at the right to trial by jury by inserting arbitration clauses into contracts that limit the ability of affected parties to bring forth a lawsuit.
At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we believe strongly that this effort to replace jury trials with arbitration is wrong and is not in the best interest of injury victims. Arbitrators are often not the neutral parties they are presumed to be, which is particularly damaging as a result of their decisions being considered final.
