Why doctors and lawyers call and send you letters after a collision

Why doctors and lawyers call and send you letters after a collision

The police crash report generated at the scene of a collision is a public record. It contains your name, address, date of birth, driver’s license number, and social security number. It used to be that no one was interested in these crash reports except the people actually involved in the crash. Since they’re a public record, some attorneys and physicians recently started using them as marketing opportunities. Lawyers and doctors started purchasing the crash reports on a daily basis in an effort to solicit your business. With the increase in interest in these reports, the police agencies have started removing social security numbers from the report before releasing them to the public. However, with your phone number, cell phone number and address, the telemarketers and solicitors can contact you. Obviously, they want your business. The question is, once they have your business, are they looking out for your best interest or are they spending their time and energy on their next advertising venture or campaign. With over 35 years of combined practice experience, Mark and Todd Willis have maintained the philosophy that taking care of their clients is the first priority. They feel that if they take care of their clients the clients will return and refer others. We never cold call or solicit clients. You won’t find us in TV advertising, newspapers, phone books, magazine advertising, radio advertising, billboard advertising, or fancy trucks driving around town with flashing signs. Day in and day out we continue to take care of our client’s interests. We’ve had opportunities to talk to people who have been represented by advertising lawyers or treated by advertising physicians and frankly their stories are frightening. Before you decide to accept treatment from or be represented by a doctor or lawyer who solicited your business, you should ask other people about what their experience has been with these types of people.
