If you’ve been in an accident, you may have had an attorney approach you at the scene, offering their services and promising to get you a big settlement. While this may seem like a convenient option, it’s important to know that it’s illegal for attorneys to sign you up for representation at the scene of an accident. This practice is known as “capping,” and it’s a violation of the ethical rules that govern attorneys.
At Sam & Ash Injury Law, we believe in doing things the right way. We don’t engage in capping or any other unethical practices. We believe that our clients deserve honest and transparent representation, and that’s exactly what we provide.
First things first — what is capping? Simply put, capping is when an attorney, directly or indirectly, approaches someone who has been in an accident and offers to represent them, often at the accident scene. For example, a direct approach would be if the attorney pressures the person into signing a contract on the spot by promising a big settlement or a cash bonus. On the other hand, often times lawyers will enter into agreements and pay tow truck drivers, so-called paralegals, or someone in the medical industry to listen to police scanners and race to the crash scene to do it for them.
While this may seem like a win-win situation, it’s anything but. The problem with capping is that it’s illegal and often leads to unethical behavior down the road during your case. Attorneys who engage in capping and who are willing to lose their law license just to sign your case are more interested in making a quick buck than in providing quality representation. This can lead to attorneys taking shortcuts, rushing cases through the system, or even outright lying to their clients to maintain their revenue stream and maximize their profits.
We understand that an accident can be a traumatic and stressful event, and the last thing you need is a lawyer who isn’t on your side. That’s why our mission is to provide honest and ethical representation to every client we serve.
