Runners / Ambulance Chasers / Unethical Law Firms
Have you or a member of your family received an unsolicited communication from a lawyer, law firm or someone acting on a lawyers behalf after you or a member of your family have been injured in Georgia?
Did you know that this is against the laws of Georgia and the Georgia State Bar Rules? Ben F. Windham, P.C. prides itself on obtaining cases ethically and through the reputation of our trial skills and good name. Unfortunately there are a decent number of Georgia Lawyers who do not play by the rules and engage in the use of “Runners” or “Ambulance Chasers” to recruit new cases. Some of these unethical lawyers promise unrealistic results to get you to sign on with their firms. Some of them even pay cash money to a relative to encourage you to hire their firm. These lawyers cannot get hired on their good name alone because they do not have one. The outcome is usually to the disadvantage of the general public of Georgia. These lawyers typically make mistakes that cost the clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in larger cases. These lawyers also commonly mistreat or even withhold monies from the clients in violation of the fee arrangement. Simply Said… “Lawyers using Runners In Georgia is bad for Georgians.”
If you have been contacted on an unsolicited basis by a lawyer or someone representing them as a runner after you or your loved one have been in a car accident or injured by the negligence of others, PLEASE report that person to Ben F. Windham, P.C. immediately.
We will assist you and / or report that runner / ambulance chaser to the State Bar of Georgia on your behalf so that they do not have an opportunity to victimize other good folks.
