Can an Attorney Refuse Your Case?

So you or someone you know has been involved in a motor vehicle accident and is having trouble finding an attorney. While it is important that you hire the best attorney for your case, attorneys do not take every case that comes to them. Just because there is a clear liability does not mean you have a good case. There are many reasons a personal injury attorney may refuse the case, no matter what the details are. It is best to always remember you have options.

Know Your Options

So what are they? First, you must understand why the attorney has made the decision to refuse your case. Do not get discouraged just because an attorney did not want to take your case. Sometimes it is simply because they are already busy and they do not have the time it takes to dedicate to your claim. There may also be a conflict of interest based on the parties involved. If an attorney refuses your case, it is OK to ask why. 

Unfortunately, the refusal of your case could also be a personal thing. In this instance it is OK to continue to shop around for the attorney that best fits your needs.

No matter how clear you think your case is to a success, a skilled attorney may think otherwise. Maybe your case is not winnable to them. While you deserve someone that will fight for you, not every case ends the way you hope. In short, they may believe your case is not worth it. Sometimes there are ways for you to represent yourself in a case. Other times it is just a matter of treating and giving the responsible party the bill. There are several options available to you.

Other Kinds of Cases

In a very odd circumstance your case may not be a personal injury case like you believe. Certain factors may break your case down to a workers comp case or a medical malpractice case. Be sure to contact an attorney that works in the specific area your case can be found in. Luckily, in most cases, the attorney you speak with may nor be able to assist you, but they may have a professional referral for you.

Find the Right Lawyer

Either way, your case may not be for everyone, but if you continue to research and look around the type of case you have, you will be fine. Continue to shop around.
