Why are there so many bad drug commercials on TV or on the internet?
We hate these ads too!
But, since you likely noticed these ads, let’s just agree that they are effective, and move onto why we need them.
By the time you notice any given drug ad, you have likely seen it a number of times, and you can assume that the reason for the push for that particular drug or medical device advertising is because there is an impending date after which any injured individual will be barred from filing a lawsuit or being included in a settlement.
Lawyers involved with these lawsuits often step up their advertising just before dates that will restrict the filing of lawsuits in order to reach anyone that may qualify.
This time bar on filing a lawsuit is generally due to a statute of limitations or a settlement of the lawsuit.
A statute of limitation is a state law that defines the time-period in which the claimant may file a lawsuit.
In drug and medical device cases it is generally defined as a certain number of years after the date you were injured or discovered your injury.
There is nothing more heartbreaking than having to turn away the lawsuit of an injured individual who should have qualified under the terms of the drug company’s settlement, but who didn’t learn about the lawsuit until after the drug company bars any further lawsuits.
