I was involved in a car accident a few months back. The tow truck driver that the police had to move my mother's vehicle told us to contact a lawyer that he uses all the time. He stated that this lawyer always wins cases for them in minor accidents. My mother decided that we take his advice. Now, months later, the attorney sent us a letter stating that he can't take our case because after investigation, he found that there's a conflict of interest. Why would he sign a contract with us both? Wouldn't he have known he couldn't take my mother & I case from the start? The letter also stated that our injury involved claims against a government agency & there being strict requirements to make a claim? I think this was a set up (people that hit us, police, tow driver & lawyer) work together
If you suffer a personal injury as the result of the actions or negligence of another, you may seek financial compensation for physical or emotional damages.
Personal injury lawsuits allow an injured person to seek compensation for the injury, either by court decision or through a settlement.
