Recently, someone who was injured in a car accident came to us for representation after going to see another attorney who heavily advertises on television. After the other attorney turned her down, she came to me in desperation. She thought our firm only handled bankruptcy cases, and she was hesitant to reach out to me. However, I'm really glad she turned to our firm for help. She had a legitimate personal injury case, and at the end of the case, we were able to make a very successful settlement. From this situation, there are two valuable lessons to be learned:
It's Okay to Seek out the Advice of More Than One Attorney
If one attorney doesn't think you have a case, it's okay to seek out the advice of another attorney. It's perfectly okay to look and see if another attorney has a different opinion. Not every attorney will take all cases, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you don't have a case. I've seen this happen many times throughout my career. It's important to understand that attorneys handle different types of cases. If an attorney is not experienced in automobile accident cases, they may not have the knowledge needed to help you pursue the case. On the other hand, they may not think the case has enough value to make it worth pursuing. This doesn't mean that you should give up on your case – it only means you should seek out the advice of a different personal injury attorney to handle your case. If they both agree on the matter, at least you know that you did everything you could. But, as here, different attorneys may have different points of view. We knew exactly how to help this person, and we did just that.
Don't Be Afraid to Ask for Assistance
It can be intimidating to ask for assistance in your case, especially if you've already been turned down by another attorney. Even though I'm not on the radio or television all of the time, it's important to understand that I'm still here to help you. Sure, the Dellutri Law Group helps people with bankruptcy cases, but we also help many people fight their foreclosure and assist the injured in personal injury and wrongful death cases as well.
