Consumer Rights

CCJ is the consumers' watchdog.  We continuously monitor issues affecting consumers from bad telephone service to medical mistakes resulting in malpractice. CCJ has been in the forefront of fighting attempts to limit consumers' access to the civil justice system.

CCJ will continue to fight to reduce medical errors by advocating for doctor disclosure, an improved peer review system, and an end to mandatory overtime for doctors and nurses. When the Pennsylvania legislature passed HB1802 in 2002, and it was signed by then Governor Schweiker, the people of Pennsylvania won a very important first step toward improving patient safety.  Although the so-called �tort reform� that passed as part of HB1802 will have a negative effect on victims of medical mistakes, it could have been much worse had CCJ not been actively educating and lobbying the legislators.
