Frivolous Lawsuits

Frivolous lawsuits filed by out-of-control personal injury trial lawyers! This was the T.V. ad that caught my attention this morning along with bright images against a dark background flashing the words "frivolous lawsuit" and "personal injury trial lawyer." Here's an article about the message. What is an “out-of-control personal injury trial lawyer?” And why would any "personal injury trial lawyer" file a "frivolous lawsuit?" Seems pretty foolish since we only get paid when if they win. Frivolous lawsuit talk big business is typical, but ironic given that businesses file four times as many lawsuits as individuals represented by trial attorneys and judges find such businesses engage in frivolous litigation far more often than individuals. It's common sense though if you realize that business lawyers get paid to litigate and personal injury lawyers only get paid to win.
