Can I switch lawyers during my personal injury case?

Yes! You always have the right to chose your lawyer, even in the middle of a case. And switching lawyers is not hard. In fact, it happens all the time. In almost every case, switching lawyers costs the client nothing and can help the client get the best result.

One of the most common reasons people switch lawyers is because their current lawyer is hard to reach and never calls back. Sometimes the client realizes that their lawyer doesn’t have the right experience for their complex personal injury case. Some clients lose faith in their lawyer because the lawyer pushes them to take a bad deal or won’t fight for a better deal.

Regardless of the reason, you can always switch lawyers and hire someone who gives you the confidence you need to see your case through to the end. And even if you’re not sure that you want to switch lawyers, you can always get a second opinion. For many people, the first lawyer they hire to handle their personal injury case is the first and only lawyer they have ever had. Getting a second opinion from another lawyer can let you compare attorneys and determine whether the lawyer you hired is the right person to represent you and your family.
