Your Options if You Don’t Like Your Injury Lawyer
Attorney Tyson Mutrux describes in this video about your options if you don’t like your injury lawyer
Hi! Tyson Mutrux here with the Mutrux Law Firm. Today I want to talk about your options if you don’t like the personal injury attorney you hired. Now I’m going to first tell you that if you don’t like the personal injury attorney if it’s from a lack of communication or whatever, you usually should probably try to work out with the personal injury attorney.
There are many consequences to firing your personal injury attorney. One of the main things is that you may not be able to find another attorney. Many attorneys don’t like taking on cases that have been handled by other attorneys. Another thing is that attorney may not have done anything wrong. Call them, talk to them, and maybe you can work out whatever issues you’re having. And they can also put a lien on your case. So, they’ve done a bunch of work on your case. They get paid for that time which makes it far less likely for the next attorney to want to take your case, and it could also reduce the amount of money that you’re going to get.
However, after you’ve gone with the sayings, you’ve talked to your attorney, and you don’t want them to work on the case anymore, well, your options are that file is yours, okay? In the state of Missouri you own the file, the attorney doesn’t own the file, so you have a right to get that file. You also have a right to have someone else handle the case for you. So, those are your rights. You do have an option of getting another attorney. There’s nothing wrong with that, but there are consequences to that, so make sure you keep that in mind.
