What’s Really in General Mills’ Bag of Trix?

Synergy Settlement Services proudly supports the AAJ and the protection of the civil justice system. As the AAJ recently told its membership in a “Take Justice Back” e-blast, General Mills, the owner of product staples including Trix, Cheerios, Betty Crocker, and Pillsbury, has quietly updated its terms of service to include a forced arbitration clause that eliminates its customers’ rights.

Forced arbitration clauses allow corporations like General Mills to deprive customers of their day in court in a process that funnels them into an un-American dispute mill without any ability to appeal.

You can help by taking action now. Write to Congress to urge them to protect their constituents from the unfair and abusive practice of forced arbitration.

Thank you for taking the time to take a stand!

I wanted to pass my highest recommendation to Synergy who we routinely get involved in cases when Medicare issues come up, especially when dealing with Medicare Set Asides. Synergy went beyond the call of duty in a recent case that was settled and dealt one-on-one with our clients and their family. They spent time on the phone with them to be sure they got all their questions answered and did a fantastic job dealing with Medicare.
