  • Can an attorney handle a case 400 miles away?

    Friend involved in a motorcycle crash due to unmarked road construction. In an ICU 400 miles from home. Should an attorney be obtained from their home town or from the area of the crash?

    Jonathan’s Answer

    The answer is yes. Attorneys can get a license on a per case basis across the country. The important thing is to hire an attorney you trust who will be convenient to you and really knows how to handle these cases.

    Many attorneys on this site are members of a national organization that will help put you in touch with great attorneys anywhere in the U.S.

    The quick and easy answer is yes you are entitled to compensation. If you have not already and are in need of assistance from a doctor I highly encourage you to see one right away. If the ambulance is a municipal entity you should understand there are different responsibilities when going after them. You should use this site to find a good lawyer in your area.

    Jonathan’s Answer

    I have a few questions about the fact scenario. Is that offer in addition to the medical bills? For how long did you treat with your doctor?

    Your attorney should be able to give you an opinion about the value of your case. What that means is what the attorney thinks a jury would award at the time of trial.

    This website has a lot of good information and I'm sure you could contact anyone of the highly rated attorneys for a second opinion. Good luck.
