Some attorney’s use a “runner” to push their services. In other words, if they hear someone was in a car wreck, they might send this person to make money off you and your accident. In fact, sometimes they are so eager to start making money that they’ll send this runner while you’re still in the hospital.
This is illegal in some states and unethical in every situation. If an attorney needs clients so bad that they have to seek you out instead of the other way around, their services may be questionable. You are probably scared and confused about the process after the wreck and you don’t know if you should hire this attorney. Save yourself from having to fire that lawyer later, and find your own Wichita personal injury attorney. You might even consider contacting the Kansas State Bar and filing a complaint against the attorney that sought you out.
Other people to watch out for after a wreck include insurance agents who want to debunk your case. They might send you a letter saying you don’t need to contact a lawyer or use other sly tactics to ruin your case. Speaking with a personal injury attorney will shed light on more tactics the adjuster might use and also inform you of what information you should or shouldn’t give to the insurance company.
