How about the 2 guys that robbed a 7-11 and fled. One person witnessed that, and chased after the crooks. The crooks, realizing they were being pursued ran a red light, broadsiding a car, killing 2 people. The remaining family members sued THE WITNESS (Not the crook) on the grounds that had he not been chasing the crooks, they wouldn't have run the red light, and thus the 2 family members would've been spared.
They were awarded half a million dollars in damages.
If this doesn't take the taco on the egregious scale, then I don't know what does.
And people wonder why there are such a dearth of heroes in society today.

I've heard about ambulance chasing lawyers. But I doubt these stories are true. Usually it's the lawyers chasing the ambulances. What you meant to say was ambulance-chasing lawyers. Notice the hyphen. Any phrase like that is always hyphenated.

But take heart. Ninety-nine percent of the English-speaking population of the world will be born, learn, graduate, work their entire lives, retire, and, eventually, die, never appreciating that subtlety of grammar. Including most lawyers.

This grammar tip brought to you courtesy of Hmmmm...

I have a few outrageous stories (my best friend's father is a lawyer, not an ambulance-chaser, mind you). I'll slap up the best one here.
A lawyer is out chasing after ambulances (God, you can already tell there's a punchline), and he hears a dispatch over his shortwave radio. He kicks it into high gear and heads for the site of an accident. On the way there, he notices a rival lawyer in traffic headed the same direction, and immediately speeds up, a move echoed by the other lawyer. The two are engaged in a near-drag race to the accident site, when the first lawyer hears an update to the initial dispatch on his radio, takes his eyes off the road for a second, and rams right into another car. The first lawyer goes to court, and has the audacity to sue the rival lawyer for damages, stating that he wouldn't have been going that fast had the rival lawyer not been headed for the same accident scene. The first lawyer lost this suit, but still a crazy tale.
On a lighter note, and in a story handed down to me from my parents, I was 3 and in a car with my dad, when a guy in a van backs into us at a red light. A very minor accident, but enough damage to our little POS car to wager a lawsuit on (which never happened, by the way). My parents asked me to tell them what happened, and I spouted off a fairly accurate description of the accident. Right when they began thinking that I could be a useful witness, I began a tale running like, "...and then Superman flew down out of the sky, picked up the car, and 'WHOOOOOSHED' us to safety!" Useful witness my jetpipe- I was 3! What could you expect?
