Barratry, or solicitation of personal injury claims, is a large and growing problem in Texas. This type of “ambulance chasing” gives all lawyers a bad name, and should be universally condemned in the legal community. Sadly, the State Bar of Texas generally turns a blind eye to this illegal and unethical practice.

If you are involved in an auto collision or you are injured in any other way that attracts publicity, generates a public record (such as a police report), or results in a hospital visit, you may very well be approached by a lawyer or someone working on behalf of a lawyer. That person may be a chiropractor who offers a free X-ray, and then tells you that you must sign a contract with “their” lawyer before you can get the Xray.
