The Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association condemns the use runners and other unethical practices.
A runner is someone who solicits clients for lawyers or doctors for the purpose of making an insurance claim. Being is runner is illegal and using runners is illegal in Connecticut. In fact, all legitimate lawyers condemn the practice.
The Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, a group of plaintiff personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers lobbied hard to make the practice of “running” or ambulance chasing illegal. They successfully passed Public Act 09-222, which became effective on October 1, 2009.
In response to a recent incident involving a lawyer in Bridgeport, Connecticut, the President of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association issues this statement:
"The CTLA will continue to advocate for tougher restrictions on the use of runners by doctors and attorneys"
