The title confuses me to no end. My first instinct when I saw it was 'a guy that chases after a vehicle of some kind', and instead it's a legal profession. Can someone explain the title to me, so that I don't end up saying something stupid?

It's American lingo. Supposedly lawyers are so eager to get in on lawsuits that they'll chase after ambulances in the hopes that they can sue a rich person for the injury, regardless of whether or not they actually caused it.

Description has a few too many pronouns, so I edited it for those who haven't heard the term before.
