Can You Fire Your Car Accident Lawyer in Illinois?
You have the right to choose your lawyer. If you are unhappy or displeased with your attorney, you can change lawyers. However, you do not have an unlimited amount of time to do so. First, the time to file a lawsuit is limited by Illinois’ statute of limitations. If you fail to file a complaint in court before that date, then your claim will forever be lost. Also, if your case is headed to trial, a judge might not allow you to substitute your lawyer on the eve of trial. Otherwise, you can change your lawyer at any time.
If you decide to choose us to represent you, we will contact your former attorney and make arrangements to have your file shipped to us. We will then make sure we have all of the documents and evidence we need to prove your case. If your previous attorney did not gather all of the evidence such as medical records, medical bills, expert evidence, and other information, then Stein & Shulman’s attorneys will. Your lawyers will have use that we will use to prove to the insurance company that they should settle your case or prepare the case to go to trial if the insurance company refuses to make a reasonable offer.
