What are frivolous lawsuits?

QUESTION:

What are frivolous lawsuits?

You may have heard people talk about ambulance chasing and frivolous lawsuits.  So how can you tell when a case is frivolous or not?

AND THE ANSWER IS:

Well, there just aren’t a lot of frivolous lawsuits as insurance companies would have you believe.  It’s just not true.  Insurance-company propaganda, I call it.  As we just discussed, we’re contingency-fee lawyers.  Frivolous claims or frivolous lawsuits by their very definition have no value.  So getting paid a percentage of a case with no value means getting paid…. no value. Why would an attorney or a client pursue a case with no value?
