Has your case been rejected by another lawyer? Still wonder if you have one?

I am often fond of telling a story regarding a former client whose case had been rejected by two other lawyers.

Each lawyer had looked at the case and told the client that there was nothing that could be done.

The client, on a lark, stopped by my office. I looked over his paperwork. It was a car accident case of disputed liability and both prior lawyers had thought that the dispute over liability would prevent any recovery for my client’s bodily injuries.

He had been hurt bad. He had been hospitalized over 30 days after having been struck by a semi truck while crossing the street. He had many broken bones. The accident report said it was his fault; that the client had walked right into the path of the semi truck.

I studied the accident report a little bit further. I determined that some issues existed which my tended to show that the truck driver actually was responsible for injuring the client.

So, I agreed to take the case for the client. I put together a packet detailing my findings and assembled a brochure detailing my clients injuries and sent it into the insurance company. And you know what? The insurance company agreed with my assessment and ended up paying its full policy limits!

What’s The Lesson Here?

If a lawyer has turned down your case down, don’t give up: call my office today at (317) 916-0000! You may still have a case and there may be still be time left!
