Anti-Ambulance Chasing Act

To protect the country’s shipping industry from the dishonest practices of lawyers who have been taking advantage of labor claims and disputes filed by the seafarers, the Philippines is set to pass an Anti-Ambulance Chasing Act. 

The new law is considered important and timely since these so-called ambulance chasers have been bringing inflated injury claims that have become an increasing concern to shipowners and managers.
