You can get a second opinion from another Detroit lawyer. It is your case. It is your life. And it is your right to seek counsel and guidance from a lawyer of your choice to ensure that you and your family are being protected and that you are receiving the compensation and benefits that you are legally entitled to.
Getting a second opinion from another Detroit lawyer will help you accomplish those goals.
The most common reasons that automobile accident victims seek to get a second opinion from another lawyer is when:
- Their current attorney is pressuring them to accept a low-ball settlement offer from the insurance company.
- Their No-Fault benefits – which pay for their medical bills and lost wages – are cut off by the insurance company, but their current attorney is doing nothing to get the insurance company to pay.
- They realize their current attorney is not as “experienced” with car or truck accident cases as he or she claimed to be on a website or in ads on TV.
- Their current attorney is not making them a priority – not communicating and not returning phone calls and emails.
It is important to know that your current attorney cannot prevent you from seeking a second opinion, nor can your current attorney stop you from switching to a different lawyer after you obtain a second opinion.
Also, keep in mind that if your current attorney objects to your seeking a second opinion or tries to talk you out of it, then that may be a signal to you that it is in fact time to get a second opinion from another Detroit lawyer.
