  • Can I fire my attorney after having him for a year

    Was in a accident in March 27, 2015 I want to fire him. Me and my husband was in the accident

    Coby’s Answer

    Yes you can fire your attorney for good cause. I might suggest you demand a meeting with him in person and see if you can work out whatever issues there are between the both of you. And in the event that they cannot be resolved then you need to obtain a full release of your contract get a copy of your file.
    Good luck.

  • Difference between personal injury lawyer and liability lawyer

    Whats the difference between a personal injury lawyer and a liability lawyer

    Coby’s Answer

    There really is not enough information here to answer your question. A lot of it depends on what the purpose of the recovery is going to be. Whether it is for injuries or for property damage as a result of some negligent act. I suggest you contact a personal injury attorney for a free evaluation, most handle all types of damage cases based on liability or rather negligence.

    Coby’s Answer

    If the baby and mother are doing fine and have no issues following the birth then it will be hard to make any type of claim. Fortunately if that is the case the damages are minimal. But to be sure you should probably consult with an attorney who specializes in medical negligence and patient dumping.
