If you are unhappy about how your lawyer is handling your car accident, medical malpractice, or other personal injury case, you absolutely have the option to change lawyers in the middle of your case – even if a lawsuit has been filed and your case is pending in court. As long as there is no verdict, you can easily change lawyers and get a second chance.
The lawyers at Cohen and Sinowski have been brought in during the middle of many personal injury cases, as some of our clients were not happy with their lawyers for a number of reasons, giving our clients a second chance case.
Reasons for Changing Lawyers During a Personal Injury Case
There are a few different reasons you may be considering hiring a new lawyer in the middle of your personal injury case. Although changing your lawyer does not require a reason, people typically look for a new lawyer because:
- The lawyer is difficult to get a hold of or will not return your calls.
- The client feels there has not been enough progress in his or her case.
- The client has lost faith in the lawyer’s ability to win the case.
- The client has lost trust in the lawyer.
- The client has found the lawyer has a conflict of interest.
In some cases, the lawyer may turn you away, as the lawyer may think the case isn’t worth it. At Cohen and Sinowski, we will always see your case through as discussed in your initial consultation, and will never turn you away during the middle of a personal injury case.
Once the client has decided it is in his or her best interest to part ways, the client should start interviewing new attorneys immediately. You’ll also want to submit a letter in writing to the lawyer you wish to fire.
Will I Owe My Previous Lawyer any Fees?
Since Georgia personal injury lawyers work on contingency fees, you won’t have to pay your first lawyer anything. You only pay when the lawyer wins or settles your case. Therefore, there are no financial setbacks to changing your lawyer in the middle of your personal injury case.
