Since childhood, I've always been fascinated by the ambulance chasing lawyer commercials you see on television. The commercials include the personal injury lawyers that provide legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of somebody else. In TV shows and movies, they're the lawyers in the polyester suits spending their time convincing clients they should be compensated for their personal injury. In real life, I believe them to be more respectable and professional than the stereotype allows. What I find fascinating is, love them or hate them, the commercials work. Those trial lawyers receive almost instant name recognition through their pitch on television.
But when it comes to social media, do we really want people selling us their products and services based on our personal tragedies?
