If my lawyer files a notice of intent and allready sent my case to a orthopedic expert and still in processing mode but I dislike my lawyer that's handling my case, could I switch to another lawyer?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Of course you can switch to another lawyer if one has agreed to take your case. Before you severe ties with your attorney there are many things to consider. medical malpractice cases are very rule specific and unforgiving when it comes to mistakes or statute of limitation issues. Before you "switch" to another lawyer you better make sure you have one that has agreed to take your case. Depending on the merits of your case it may be difficult to find another lawyer. And if you wait too long most attorneys are leery of taking cases that have little time to prepare them properly. My advice is to work things out with your attorney (if you can) is it a personality issue you have or a competence issue etc.
