I don't know whom you consulted, but it should not be hard to find an attorney if your case is really worth $70,000. I'm not saying this is the case with you, but it is common that many people think their case is worth more than it really is. I don't know what is your basis for saying your case is worth $70,000. Maybe it is, and maybe it isn't. If a lawyer does not want to take a personal injury case, which are normally taken on a contingency, it is because the attorney doesn't believe he/she will be able to get much. Law these days is a business, like anything else, and therefore the attorney must make money or se/she has no business. However, it is not that the attorney doesn't care about his/her clients. I care deeply about my clients and I always want to do what is best for them. However, there is no point in taking a case which appears unlikely to generate a reasonable recovery. If there is no money to be made due to the facts of the case, then the attorney can neither help his client nor himself/herself, and would he just wasting his/her time which would be better spent in a case in which both the client and the attorney would benefit. It's not that lawyers don't care, it's that there are financial and practical realities in any business. If your case is really worth $70,000, call me! I would love to help you and get a $23,000+ fee in the process.
