Personal injury lawyers are sometimes called “ambulance chasers.” The Illinois Supreme Court forbids all lawyers from soliciting clients in person or via real time contact. Lawyers may not circumvent this rule by using a third party. The reality is that legitimate attorneys are not “ambulance chasers.” Our firm has never called a prospective client and will never do so.
If an attorney is engaging in “ambulance chasing,” then they are partaking in unethical behavior. Much like the door to door salesmen of yesteryear, these attorneys may come from out of the area and provide an inferior product. A personal injury case, much like a major purchase, should be handled by a reputable local company that you trust. Choosing someone who solicits you can spell disaster later on.
Our law firm has been handling personal injury cases in the Rockford area for the past 18 years. We know the local rules, Judges, insurance companies and jury pool . We have earned their respect through winning cases. These are the things that matter when it comes to increasing the value of your case.
If you have been injured as the result of someone else’s negligence, call MacCloskey, Kesler and Associates, LLP. Do not fall victim to solicitation.
