Phone Calls After Accidents

It is regrettable, but many of my clients receive phone calls after accidents they are involved in. These come from call centers presumable run by doctors and clinics. Lawyers are generally , for good reason, expressly forbidden from directly contacting an injured person (ambulance chasing). 

But, these rules do not apply to doctors and clinics. Some use official sounding terms like "Tennessee Accident Investigation Bureau" offering free therapy. (of course, they refer you to a firm).

If you have an accident where you are not at fault, you may want to turn your phone off for a while, except to call a lawyer you know and trust.
