Ads Want You to Take Health Advice from Lawyers, Not Doctors
Consumers are surrounded by aggressive lawyer advertising that uses sensationalist and misleading information to lure or scare people into joining lawsuits. It’s more than annoying. It’s dangerous when patients start making health decisions based on misleading information they see in these ads, rather than advice from their doctor. It is also bad for our legal system when these ads convince people to seek easy money, even if they haven’t been harmed.
Increasingly, doctors are concerned about their patients’ health due to the misleading information they receive from these ads. What these lawsuit ads don’t say can hurt you. If you have questions about your health, talk to your doctor, not a personal injury lawyer.
