Case solicitation by lawyers is illegal in Texas. However, unscrupulous lawyers would still cold call victims, or even show up at their door, to try to sign them up as clients. And chiropractors would solicit accident victims and refer them to attorneys. Fortunately, this unethical practice is now prohibited.
Effective September 1, 2009, it is a crime for chiropractors to solicit people injured in collisions for 30 days.
