Honest Maryland personal injury lawyers now have a tougher job after insurance scam attorney pleads guilty.

Honest Maryland personal injury lawyers - like those in D.C. or Virginia handling injury cases for people against insurance companies will have a tougher job now.

Thanks to one Ryan Lahuti, a Maryland personal injury lawyer who pled guilty to insurance fraud.  Lahuti, like some unscrupulous lawyers, hired an investigator, or "runner" to obtain accident and police reports and contact people who had been in accidents.  Then the runner sent them to this lawyer in Maryland who sent them to a chiropractor who falsified treatment records and encouraged people to fake or exaggerate their injuries.

Lahuti, the chiropractor and the investigator were caught, of course, like most criminals are.  The investigator was just sentenced to 3 years and Lahuti faces up to 20 years when he is sentenced next month.

Lahuti and co. have made it more difficult for honest Maryland personal injury lawyers and honest victims of car accidents to prove their legitimate harms and losses after being hurt in car accidents. 

The moral of the story is:  don't associate with a lawyer in Maryland, D.C. or Virginia (or anywhere else for that matter) who uses runners.  If you are injured in an accident, because of medical malpractice or at work, do your own research - get the information you need to make the right choice for you and your family.  This former Maryland attorney's clients certainly wish they did.
