A professional swindler of accident insurance companies who continually moves from town to town in order to escape exposure. "That hedgehopper's got a trick knee (which he can throw out at will) that made him a bundle (lot of money). He's got the courts knocked up (tied up) with bites (litigation growing out of his activities)."
