US Supreme Court Tightens Rules on Lawsuit Litigation Location

Did you know that you’re not able to bring a lawsuit in just any location in the United States? The U.S. Supreme Court recently handed down a verdict that is making a lot of people very angry. Their ruling states that injured workers are not able to file a lawsuit against a company when the injury didn’t occur there, or when the company is not based in that state.

The question is, what does this mean for you if you’ve had an injury on the job?

Knowing Your Rights

You do have rights, and it’s important for you to know what those rights are. Unfortunately, you need to file your lawsuit in the state where the injury occurred, or where the company is located. In a way, your hands are tied. The decision appears to favor large corporations, which they are very happy about.
