NPR On Influx Of Lawyer Ads: “With Paydays Like That, The Ads Keep Coming”

NPR’s Marketplace documents the process by which trial lawyers find cases through what one law professor called “referral mills.”

The story focuses on lawsuits like those against Bayer over its Roundup pesticide product which are the subject of commercials from trial lawyers urging potential leads to “call now.” Those who call are sent to call centers, which send the cases to other lawyers who bundle them with others and work on a contingency basis. Another law professor said there’s “a whole tiered network of lawyers that can profit off of these cases.” 

Lawyers typically take 30 percent of more of settlements or judgements. “With paydays like that, the ads keep coming,” the author writes.
