Hate Your Current Personal Injury Lawyer? No Problem,You Can Still Hire A New One.


“I hate my lawyer,” Barbara complained bitterly over the phone. “I wish I could switch lawyers. My current lawyer is telling me that I need to just take the $15,000 that the insurance company is offering me. But I’m still in pain. And, I’m worried that if I accept the $15,000 now, that I’ll have more medical bills in the future.”

Barbara had called GetMeJustice for a second opinion to see if her current personal injury attorney was giving her good advice. However, what Barbara didn’t know is that she could switch lawyers, even in the middle of her personal injury claim, and retain GetMeJustice now.

Florida Bar Rule 4-1.5 allows clients to fire their attorneys, even under a contingency fee agreement. The discharged lawyer has the right to recover a reasonable amount for the work already performed up to the maximum allowed under the contingency fee agreement, or in Barbara’s case up to a maximum of $5,000. (33 1/3% for the $15,000 that her current lawyer negotiated for her under their contingency fee agreement.)

I explained to Barbara that switching lawyers would not cost her any additional money if she decided to hire GetMeJustice instead. GetMeJustice would charge Barbara the same 33 1/3 percent contingency fee. GetMeJustice would simply pay Barbara’s previous lawyer from our 33 1/3 percent fee, or fee-split with the other attorney.
Barbara was delighted to learn that she could switch lawyers, hire GetMeJustice, and not pay any more money.

Fortunately for Barbara, she switched to GetMeJustice for her personal injury claim before she settled her case for $15,000. As a result of retaining GetMeJustice, Barbara was sent out for advanced medical diagnostic testing that revealed Barbara’s undiagnosed back injury. Barbara received the medical treatment she needed in order to recover from her back injury, and a much larger settlement offer.

If you are unhappy with your current personal injury lawyer and would like a second opinion, please call GetMeJustice today. Like Barbara, you too can switch lawyers, hire GetMeJustice, and not pay any more money because you switched lawyers.
