These Are The Reasons Why Your Accident Attorney Won’t Take Your Case
These Are The Reasons Why Your Accident Attorney Won’t Take Your Case: In case of a personal injury during an accident, it is best to have an attorney to represent you. With construction workers for instance, scaffolding injuries are common in which case a scaffolding accident lawyer should be contacted. Once you present your case to your accident or personal injury lawyer, he/she will evaluate it before signing on and committing to represent you. There are certain factors that have to be accounted for in any such case and they make or break the deal with respect to the attorney taking the case.
Why the attorney won’t take your case:
An attorney is most likely to turn down your case due to a combination of these factors:
- Your case isn’t strong enough:
For a potential claim to be valid, some specifics should be present. If these requirements aren’t met, you may not have a case, in which case you will be hard-pressed to find an attorney to represent you. For instance:
- Actual physical injury or financial loss is absent. That is to say, you may only have suffered emotional distress
- Missing the deadline for the statute of limitations
- Your negligence or reckless actions contributed as well
It cannot always be certainly surmised that the negligence at the part of one person caused an accident. In some situations, the negligence of many amounts to a huge mishap. In construction sites for instance, a scaffolding accident lawyer may have to prove that only the scaffolding was to blame rather than his client. If it is proved that some actions of the client were such as to expose him to reckless conditions, then the case could go awry.
- A conflict of interest
At any point of time, a lawyer has many cases. If your case presents a conflict of interest, a lawyer is morally bound to turn down your case.
- Too much exposure
Once the accident has happened, events pursuant to that all contribute towards your case being a success or a disaster. That is to say, anything you say or do such as post about it on social media can be used to build a case against you. If an attorney determines you have too much exposure, he may turn down your case.
