Why Injured People Should Be Careful With Attorneys or Their Referral Partners Who Solicit Them

Posted on Thursday, June 26th, 2014 at 9:04 am    

attorney solicitationSomeone injured in an accident may not realize that it is illegal to be solicited by an attorney or attorney referral service. If this happens, the injured person should stay far away from that lawyer or doctor. Instead, the injured person should find a reputable doctor and reputable attorney that can represent the injured person.

Kentucky’s Solicitation Law

Kentucky prohibits attorneys and attorney referral services from directly contacting injured people to solicit them as clients. If the attorney or attorney referral service (ie. service, doctor, chiropractor, etc.) directly contacts the injured person within 30 days, it is a misdemeanor that can result in jail time. An attorney referral service can even include a doctor, if the doctor is contacting the injured person on behalf of a law firm.

Beware – Solicitation Probably Predicts Future Behavior

If an attorney or attorney referral service is willing to break the rules regarding solicitation, how would a client know what other rules this attorney or doctor are willing to break. Such “professionals” are possibly more interested in getting insurance money from their professional fee than they are in making their clients fully compensated for their injuries. Reputable attorneys want their clients to be made whole, if possible.

If you or someone you know was solicited by and attorney or and attorney referral service, please contact Lawrence & Associates Accident and Injury Lawyers, LLC today ensure you case will be handled reputably!
