Can I get legal advice regarding a recent decision by our lawyers to drop our case regarding a motorcycle accident.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Mesa, AZ

The case was against the city where it happened . the roads were being paved . We were hit by a car turning left into us. The cones were to large to see each other . The case was on the city and not the driver who hit us. Now they have said that we have no case , and that the odds were against us, so they are dropping it. Saying we can be sued for a frivolus lawsuit

    Answered . Sit down with your attorneys for a meeting to see what changed their minds. Sometimes things happen during discovery or depositions that weaken your case, or a recent appellate case comes out that adversely affects you. Based on what you hear you will know if you need to get your file and talk with another attorney.

    Good luck.
