"It clearly was a growing problem and a developing industry that was seedy and predatory," said Judiciary co-chair Andrew McDonald (D-Stamford) of the burgeoning business of accosting accident victims in emergency rooms and on the street and steering them to physicians ("I know a doctor who can see you immediately"), chiropractors and lawyers. Insurers and trial lawyers joined in backing the legislation, which makes Connecticut the tenth state to regulate runners. [Connecticut Law Tribune]
