CAN I CHANGE LAWYERS IN MY PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
Posted by Ben Sessions | | Uncategorized
Unfortunately, there is high percentage of people that wish to change lawyer in their personal injury case. Generally, the reason for the change is either of a couple of things: the lawyer has failed to communicate with the client or the lawyer has decided that the case should take a course of action that the client does not want. If you are in either of those situations or if you have found yourself asking “Can I change lawyers in my personal injury case?”, you deserve to – at minimum – consider your options.
THERE IS NO HARM IN CONSIDERING ANOTHER LAWYER TO HANDLE THE REMAINDER OF YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CASE.
Many people believe that simply talking to other personal injury lawyers can be harmful to their case. This is simply not the case. Even if your current attorney is aware that you are consulting with other personal injury lawyers, that should not be cause any difficulty in the relationship going forward. In fact, if a lawyer cannot handle a second opinion gracefully, one has to wonder how the lawyer will handle the pressures of litigation.
EVEN IF YOU DO NOT MAKE A CHANGE, THERE MAY BE AN ADVANTAGE FROM SEEKING A SECOND (OR THIRD) OPINION FROM ANOTHER LAWYER.
Seeking another lawyer’s opinion can really help you moving forward with your case, even if you decide to stay with your attorney. If your lawyer understands that you are considering moving the case to another lawyer, communication regarding the status of the case is likely to improve. Also, you can expect the lawyer to be more responsive to your concerns.
