Barratry

There’s an old phrase that was once used to describe personal injury attorneys. It wasn’t very nice.

Some personal injury attorneys were called “ambulance chasers.” The phrase “ambulance chasers,” actually refers to something called barratry.

Barratry is a crime in Texas. States like California, Oklahoma and Virginia also punish the practice.
