At Matzke Injury Law, we prioritize protecting the rights of accident victims in Nevada and combating Illegal Solicitation, a practice that seeks to exploit vulnerable individuals during challenging times. On this page, we explain the legal provisions that shield individuals from intrusive solicitation tactics and outline the recourse available to those who have experienced such misconduct. Our commitment to justice extends to holding accountable those who engage in illegal solicitation, ensuring that accident victims are not taken advantage of during their time of need.

Prohibition on Solicitation

It is essential to understand that soliciting accident victims at the scene of a crash or at medical facilities is strictly illegal. Legal regulations and ethical guidelines have been established to safeguard individuals from intrusive and potentially exploitative tactics employed by unscrupulous individuals or firms seeking to profit from their misfortune. Often times, this comes in the form of a “helpful witness” at the scene of the crash or a tow truck driver.

Void Contracts

When an attorney or anyone working on behalf of an attorney engages in illegal solicitation and enters into a contract with an accident victim, the law considers that contract void. This means that the contract is rendered invalid and unenforceable, as it was based on a criminal act. As a result, accident victims are protected from being bound by agreements that were the result of illegal solicitation. If you are currently represented by a personal injury lawyer that violated the law and solicited your business, then you are free to drop that lawyer and retain another lawyer.

Pursuing Damages

If an accident victim finds themselves in a situation where they entered into a contract as a result of illegal solicitation, they have the right to pursue legal recourse. The law allows accident victims to seek damages, specifically against the attorney or party responsible for the illegal solicitation. If you have a prior personal injury case where you were solicited at the scene of the accident by a “helpful witness,” a tow truck driver, or if someone from an attorney’s office reached out to you without your permission, then you are entitled to compensation; especially if your case settled and this lawyer received attorney fees.

Twice the Attorney Fees

In cases of illegal solicitation, the law provides a powerful protection for accident victims. If it can be proven that the attorney or their representative engaged in illegal solicitation and entered into a contract with the victim, the victim may be entitled to recover twice the amount of attorney fees they were forced to pay under the illegal contract. This legal provision aims to discourage illegal solicitation practices and ensure that accident victims are not taken advantage of during their vulnerable state. It serves as a deterrent to those who would exploit the misfortune of others for personal gain.

Illegal solicitation refers to the unlawful practice of contacting accident victims directly, often at the scene of a crash or medical facilities, to offer legal representation or services. In Nevada, strict regulations and ethical guidelines are in place to protect individuals from these intrusive and potentially exploitative tactics employed by unscrupulous individuals or firms seeking to profit from the misfortune of others. Such solicitations are considered a criminal act and can lead to void contracts, where agreements entered into as a result of illegal solicitation are rendered invalid and unenforceable. Victims have the right to pursue legal recourse and seek damages against the attorney or party responsible for the illegal solicitation. This legal provision aims to discourage such practices and safeguard accident victims from being taken advantage of during vulnerable moments.
