Beware: Trial Attorney Ads Are Dangerous Prescriptions

William Large - October 24th, 2018

“Have you been affected by medication or witnessed life-threatening side effects from it? If so, contact a lawyer now.” These words echo in our minds as the advertisements flash across our televisions, interrupting our shows again and again. What many consumers don’t realize is that these ads recruit people into thinking all their problems will be solved with a lawsuit.

The production commences when lawyers pay for those television ads asking if you have been injured from prescribed medication or surgery, or maybe just think some other health problem you have could be blamed on it. From there, they recruit a class of clients and file a class action lawsuit.

But that’s not the worst part: imagine if your mother or grandmother decided to stop taking their prescribed medication because a lawyer’s ad on television frightened them into doing just that with outrageous and inflammatory hints and allegations.
