What is an example of a lawyer “ambulance chasing”?

“Ambulance chasing” or capping is a term used to describe lawyers who solicit clients at the site of the accident. This stems from the stereotype of attorneys who would quite literally follow ambulances from the scene of the accident to the hospital to find new clients. This is just a bad practice as it highlights the desperation of the lawyers, and is less likely to have clients signing with them. It also monopolizes the clients when they are most vulnerable or unconscious, unable to think clearly about what they are signing up for. It is much better to allow the client to call the personal injury lawyer, so that they feel more comfortable moving forward through the whole process. Sometimes people want to be more involved with the proceedings of their case, and if they feel as though the lawyer is towering over them from the beginning (by showing up to the hospital without being called), they are less likely to want that lawyer representing them.
