I chose one them. The word “incompetent” is not going to even come close to describe how my attorney mishandled my case against an experienced attorney for the defendant insurance company. My case was lost in the jury trial. I plan to retain an attorney to file an appeal. Will my case be appealed on issues of law or issues of facts or both?
I read that the plaintiffs’ appeals of some of the dismissed personal injury are basically new trials where the appellate court reviews the cases de novo hearing the case allover again. So I am not sure if this would apply to my case.
Will I be able to find a contingent-fee based attorney to appeal my case if my case has merits? And am I supposed to search for an appellate attorney or a new personal injury attorney?
