The legal profession often has negative connotations associated with it, especially in the field of personal injury law. When an individual thinks of a personal injury lawyer, they often conjure images of a man with a briefcase who pounds the hallways of a hospital attempting to secure business from injured patients or a man chasing an ambulance. In reality, these stereotypical images could not be further from the truth. Lawyers, in every field of the legal profession, are held to a high standard of professional ethics and conduct and the court systems go to great lengths to ensure that those standards carry on. In fact, no other profession has stricter ethical standards than the legal profession.
