The days of society branding personal injury lawyers as simply “ambulance chasers” is over…..at least it should be. The fact is that personal injury lawyers are helping more victims today than ever before. Tort reform has brought the profession into the national spotlight, allowing the country to see that so-called “ambulance chasers” are actually activists for victims’ rights.
Personal injury lawyers are widening their practice areas and tackling more important legal topics. A national campaign has ensued to clear the profession’s name. It has actually never been a more important time to be an “ambulance chaser.” Organizations such as InjuryBoard and the AAJ are doing their part to ensure the “greedy trial lawyer” notion is a thing of the past and that victims are protected now more than ever before.
