Reasons Why Your Personal Injury Lawyer May Not Help

Why Your Personal Injury Attorney May Not Help With Your Case

If you suffer injuries from an accident, you should hire a personal injury lawyer to fight for your compensation. However, not every personal injury attorney will take your case. Some attorneys may decide to turn your claim down. Below are some of the reasons this may happen. 

Your Injuries Are Not Serious Enough

Personal injury lawyers gauge the expected return of a case based on the injury’s seriousness. Ultimately, the most critical factor in building an issue is the injury. If you sustain a minor injury, a personal injury lawyer might decline the case. They might also pass on your claim if they believe that bringing your case to court won’t get you enough money for your effort. Information about Tips Personal Injury Lawyers Recommends to Maximize Your Claim can be found here. 

The Statute of Limitations Expired

Every state has a different statute of limitations for personal injury claims. If the statute of limitations expires, state law bars you from making a case in most cases.

Difficulty Establishing Liable Parties

Even if you believe that you deserve a certain amount of compensation, your case’s viability depends on who is at fault. Personal injury lawyers evaluate who is responsible for an accident before making a point.
