When chiropractors solicit crash victims



"In Texas, lawyers are limited in the manner and time in which they can contact victims of accidents. However, chiropractors are not." And so arose the scheme by which, according to allegations in a suit filed by Allstate, "chiropractors purchase lists of auto accident victims, and then use telemarketers or other marketing schemes to contact the victims and convince them to seek treatment, which Allstate contends is often unnecessary. Once the victims are in the offices, the victims are put in touch with attorneys, even potentially having agents for the attorneys in the chiropractors' offices to sign the victims up. " (Perlmutter & Schuelke, Mar. 10).
