You’ve heard the old adage that nothing in life is free, and it especially applies when discussing the cost and consequences of lawsuit abuse. After all, the fallout from questionable legal practices and lawsuits affects each and every one of us.
For example – take a look at health care. For far too long, some personal injury lawyers have trolled for clients through aggressive and misleading advertising aimed at scaring patients into suing over their medicines. Fortunately, Texas legislators have put a stop to this, passing legislation that took effect on Sept. 1, 2019. The new law requires legal advertisements to properly warn patients that it is dangerous to stop taking a prescribed medicine before consulting a doctor.
This is just one example of how some personal injury lawyers have abused the legal system. In order to help consumers be more savvy in legal matters, Texans Against Lawsuit Abuse is sharing a Legal Consumer Guide consisting of handy tips to help Texans make informed choices when it comes to their legal needs.
