Should I Get Multiple Lawyers for My Injury Case?

Choosing the right lawyer is often the most difficult part of filing a personal injury claim against a negligent party. It's not uncommon to encounter clients who have been forced to switch lawyers at some point in their cases. This could be a matter of preference, but sometimes, it may be the best option. To avoid being in such a situation, you'll probably ask yourself: should I get multiple lawyers for my injury case? 

No law prohibits you from getting multiple lawyers for your injury case. However, before arriving at such a decision, it is crucial to weigh the pros and cons involved. 

Pros of Hiring Multiple Lawyers for Your Injury Case

You may want to get multiple attorneys to work on your injury case because you want more 'legal minds' to be involved. You probably want to weigh different legal opinions about your case and then arrive at a conclusion. 

Another supposed benefit of having multiple lawyers work on your injury case is that you'll always have a backup attorney if one cannot continue with the case. This usually happens when you don't have that much confidence in one attorney or if they drag your case and you don't want to fire them entirely. 

Cons of Hiring Multiple Lawyers for Your Injury Case

Hiring multiple attorneys for your injury case can be disastrous. It's like having numerous cooks preparing your favorite dish, but they have no idea that they're cooking together - in the same kitchen. 

Another disadvantage of having multiple attorneys work on your case is that it can be costly. Sometimes, the cost of hiring multiple attorneys might exceed the cases' worth. 

Most personal injury attorneys charge their clients on a contingency basis, meaning you'll only pay them when they win. This means you won't need to spend any money upfront, giving you the freedom to hire as many attorneys as you may wish.

However, let's look at the other side of the coin. Hiring multiple attorneys, especially if they don't know that they're both working on the case, will only create confusion further down the line. No insurance companies will want to come up against multiple attorneys representing you.

Secondly, most attorneys won't take a case they know is also being handled by another attorney, especially if they don't work together under the same law firm. 

The bottom line is, while it's not impossible to get multiple lawyers to work on your injury case, such a decision doesn't usually end well with all parties involved. Remember, your attorney expects you to be honest with them and may refuse to proceed with the case if they discover that you didn't disclose certain details, such as the parties involved.

  • What's the Best Way to Get Multiple Lawyers for My Injury Case?

    One of the best ways to have multiple attorneys work on your case is by working with a law firm with an army of attorneys available to collaborate for your best interest. 

    For example, at Morgan & Morgan, we have an army of over 1,000 attorneys representing clients from all corners of the country. This doesn't necessarily mean that you'll have 1,000 attorneys working on your case.

    However, there are times when it might be necessary to have multiple attorneys collaborate for the sake of creating the right legal strategy to fight for your rights in or out of court. In such a setting, you can have multiple attorneys working on your case to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. 

    This usually happens in more complex cases that require teamwork. For instance, one attorney might focus on interviewing witnesses while the other gathers important paperwork needed to file a successful claim. 

    As they say, two brains are better than one. This system works better if the attorneys operate under one umbrella (Morgan & Morgan as an example). 

  • How Morgan & Morgan Personal Injury Attorneys Work

    At Morgan & Morgan, collaboration is part of what we do when fighting for your rights. When you contact us for a free case evaluation, a member of our in-house team will ask you some initial cases regarding your claim.

    We'll then set up an appointment for a sign-up interview as per your schedule and at your preferred location. Whether you'd like us to travel to your home, work, or even the medical facility where you or your loved one is receiving treatment following the injury, we can always work around your schedule and preferences. 

    All this happens within a day or two. 

    After the interview, a department head will review the claim's validity. If established that you have a valid claim against the defendant, an attorney and a legal assistant will be assigned to your case. 

    To obtain the best possible outcome for your case, attorneys may share ideas with each other based on their experiences in handling similar cases. When that happens, they'll be working harmoniously under one law firm to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. 

  • Can I Switch Lawyers in the Middle of My Case?

    Yes, you have the right to choose your legal representative. However, in some cases, switching attorneys can significantly increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome instead of having multiple attorneys from different law firms work on your case simultaneously. 

    For example, if you have an attorney you feel doesn't seem to handle your case with the seriousness it deserves, you can switch to a more experienced and dedicated attorney at Morgan & Morgan.

  • Why Switch to Morgan & Morgan?

    As mentioned before, we have an army of more than 1,000 attorneys ready to represent you. However, even though we are the country's largest personal injury law firm, our attorneys don't just practice general personal injury law.

    This is one of the common reasons many clients lose their claims when working with other law firms.

    Personal injury law is broad. For this reason, it's never advisable to hire a general injury attorney. Instead, you need someone specializing in a particular aspect of personal injury law.

    For example, if you've been involved in a car accident caused by a negligent driver and suffered injuries, you need a car accident attorney to fight for your rights and obtain a fair settlement. On the other hand, if you or your loved one has been injured at someone else's property due to their negligence, you may need to speak to a premises liability attorney

    So if you find an attorney who claims to know it all, chances are you won't get the best legal representation you deserve. This doesn't necessarily mean they won't win the case, but every detail counts when it comes to personal injury law.

    Another reason you may want to switch attorneys is when you want to work with an attorney with vast legal resources to pursue the claim. 

    Unlike other cases, personal injury cases are usually expensive to manage. You need an attorney with the right legal resources to pursue the defendant in or out of court. In the process, attorneys incur many out-of-pocket expenses, which are then deducted from the settlement amount (if they win the case).

    However, some attorneys may not have such resources, and even though they may not necessarily drop your case, it could mean settling for a lesser amount as compensation. In addition, some cases may require the intervention of an expert witness to help break down specific facts. 

    Their opinion is often based on their certification, skills, experience, education, or training. Before deciding such a case, a judge may need to evaluate the opinion of an expert witness hired by the plaintiff's attorney. 

    Such an opinion could determine the course of the case. 

    Assuming that the attorney you work with lacks enough legal resources to hire an expert witness, they may still win the lawsuit. However, the settlement may not match what you would have pocketed if you had an expert witness by your side. 

    The amount of legal resources our law firm has access to is what makes us stand out in the personal injury field. This also explains why we are the largest injury law firm in the country.

    At Morgan & Morgan, we have unlimited legal resources to fight for you. As a 21st-century law firm, our team consists of engineers, mobile representatives, and thousands of employees, each working towards the common goal of ensuring our clients receive unrivaled legal representation. 

    Given that we have vast legal infrastructure, we can take on even the biggest bullies in America. We are never afraid to confront any company or organization if that's what it takes to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

    Some clients switch to Morgan & Morgan because they want to make a strong statement against the defendant - it works all the time. 

    One of the first things the defendant looks at when you file a lawsuit against them is the kind of legal representation you have on your side. If you don't have a solid legal team, the defendant won't take your claim seriously. 

    Remember, insurance companies make so much money. For this reason, they can afford the best attorneys to defend their interests. Unfortunately, this level of legal power comes with a certain degree of arrogance. Such companies will openly frustrate you or even encourage you to go to court because they know you don't stand a chance against them. 

    However, working with an established injury law firm like Morgan & Morgan changes the dynamics of such cases. It not only sends a strong message to the defendant and their legal team but also increases your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome. Insurance companies understand that Morgan & Morgan attorneys are sworn to protect their client's rights, and no amount of bullying or intimidation will stop them from this goal. 

    They also know that facing Morgan & Morgan attorneys in court is one of their worst nightmares. Our law firm has a reputation of winning up to 20 times more than the initial settlement offer when such cases go to court.

    Speaking of court, our attorneys are actually required to settle a certain amount of cases in court every year. So if the defendant's legal team thinks that taking the case to court will prevent us from fighting for your rights, that won't happen. With the amount of legal resources in our possession, we can handle any injury case. 

    Switching to Morgan & Morgan is also necessary if you want to work with a law firm with a proven track record. Our law firm has recovered over $20 billion in settlements for our clients over the last three decades!

  • Do Morgan & Morgan Lawyers Charge Upfront for Their Services?

    No. Never. We charge our clients on a contingency basis, meaning they don't owe us anything unless we win the case. So if you or your loved one has been injured due to someone else's negligence, you don't need to suffer in silence. Ideally, you have nothing to lose but so much to gain when you contact Morgan & Morgan attorneys for a free case evaluation.
