Misleading advertising

Advertising is a good way to make consumers aware of a company’s products or services. Companies by law, should advertise the standard and usual purpose of an item or service. However, some companies offer false claims that can mislead consumers.

A product or service legally,has to perform as explained in more occurrences than not for it to be a valid representation of the product or service. Therefore,if the performance of an item or service is crucial for a deal to go through, if the product or service fails and a deal rejected, there are state and federal laws that have been implemented to safe guard the customer.

Most laws state that any claim that is contrary to the standards and practicaluse of an object will have a bearing on the price, quality, and purpose of the product or service. Therefore, although deceptive informationis provided to the customer, laws arise by the customer for being mislead.

If a contract has been signed, the customer can legally drop the deal and break the contract if they have been mislead. In this instance,the customer should seek legal advice to understand how they can sue the company.

Although customers suing companies selling products have been successful, customers that have been mislead when purchasing services may be less successful. This is because suing a company based on a misleading service involves a class action suit against the entire company.

All medical procedures have risks associated with them. Anesthesia is used in many medical procedures that include dental anesthesia, delivery, and surgery. The side effects of anesthesia can range from minor to severe and can occur any time after the anesthesia is administered. Anesthesia deaths are rare but have occurred in a very few percentage of patients. Here are some risks associated with anesthesia.

General anesthesia – Minor side effects may include a sore throat, headache, nausea, vomiting, tiredness, muscle aches and fatigue. In rare cases, aspiration pneumonia can occur where stomach contents flow into the patient’s lungs. Some patients have had severe allergies, blood pressure or heart problems.

Regional anesthesia – Regional anesthesia may include minor symptoms such as those stated above. Some patients complain of pain or an infection where the injection was administered. Prolonged numbness in the areas is also a common side effect that can range from a few hours to a few weeks. In rare cases, patients can experience permanent nerve damage.

Sedation with local anesthesia – Sedation with local anesthesia can include drowsiness, allergic reactions, blood pressure and heart problems.

It is best to speak to your doctor before you book your appointment for your procedure to clarify any concerns. If you have any other medical conditions or symptoms, it is best to inform your doctor at your earliest.
