So you are unhappy with your Los Angeles personal injury lawyer for whatever reason and want to make a switch but not sure if you can or how? Keep reading. As a client, you deserve the absolute best and if you think you are not getting it, you should seek it out. Reasons for switching personal injury lawyers include: poor service, not calling you back and failure to give case updates when requested. Consider the highly talented team of Los Angeles personal injury lawyers to take on your case.
Here's what you need to know about switching Los Angeles personal injury lawyers
- Find a new Los Angeles personal injury attorney: start by finding a new lawyer that has the qualities the current one is lacking that you need. Ultimately, you want a law firm that you like on a personal and professional level. Be sure to let us know the name and number of your current lawyer and we can take it from there
- Personal records: You can put your new lawyer in charge of getting the files from your current lawyer if you do not have them already but just like hiring any lawyer, we will want to have our own conversation with you about the specifics of your LA personal injury including what happened, where it happened, when it happened and how it has impacted your life.
- Split fees: This is less for you and more for us but always good to know how it works-- when you leave your current lawyer to hire a new one the two law firms will now split fees based on whatever we ultimately recover for you. So we will likely ask you what your previous lawyer did for you and will also look at their case file to help come up with a fee % they should be entitled to. This is sometimes contentious and sometimes a smooth process but nothing for you to worry about. Almost all Los Angeles personal injury lawyers take cases on a contingency fee basis so while there will be discussions of fees owed to your previous lawyer when we take on your case, the actual payment of those fees only happens when we get you paid.
