You need to have a board certified civil trial attorney who specializes in personal injury auto accidents review your case including all the documenation. I would certainly get a second opinion before letting go of your case. Is your case in litigation (meaning did the lawyer file a lawsuit and is now withdrawing?). I need more details and would need to see police report, medical records, and your entire file.

From the information you provided, I am unable to give you a definite yes or no. Important considerations when evaluating the cause of an injury are the circumstances surrounding your conduct at the time of the injury and the medical treatment you received following the injury. Generall, lawyers do not charge a fee to evaluate a case. I would recommend you seek out a second opinion and allow another lawyer to evaluate your case.

Simply retain another personal injury lawyer. Find a lawyer with a low contingency fee, less than 30% with no costs deducted, so you get the lion’s share of the settlement, not your lawyer. Good luck.

This is certainly worth looking into. The question is whether or not the sudden stop caused your injury. The answer will depend on a detailed analysis of the accident. Consultation with a mechanical engineer and physician may be necessary. Don't get discouraged that one attorney told you you don't have a case. We would be happy to work with you to find the answers you need. No fee if no recovery. Zimmet & Quarles PL 386 255-6400.

You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing. The Guides can be accessed through my profile page on Avvo.com.
