Shapiro & Appleton

I met with a personal injury lawyer about my head injury and they said I don't have a case. If a lawyer doesn't believe I can, or should, file a claim, does this mean I don't have a case? Should I speak with another attorney?

Every attorney has a different opinion on whether someone has a case. A good piece of advice is to always get a second opinion. There are many reasons why an attorney might feel that you don't have a case.  Sometimes the liability or fault is not favorable to you which makes recovery difficult or impossible. An honest lawyer will tell you that it would be better for you to handle a claim yourself if the injury is not permanent and you would spend more money on a lawyer than if you handled the claim yourself. When it comes to brain injury that is a severe impairment which does require a seasoned attorney. You should always get a second opinion on anything in life, medical advice, buying a car, and legal advice is no different.
