Just a Bunch of Ambulance Chasers


The term "ambulance chaser" gives rise to the image of an ambulance speeding down the street with 10-12 lawyers in pin stripe suits following right behind, eager to get someone just injured in some type of accident to sign the their contract for legal representation. This is also the pejorative term my Trial Attorney colleagues and I are called when someone wants to get a rise out of us. That rise is usually as a result of name calling by some "grass roots" group disguised as friends of consumers; when in reality the group is almost always backed by all of the big money interests (such as the Tobacco Industry, the Insurance Industry or the Chamber of Commerce).
