The Rules of Thumb: When will an attorney take a case?

Personal injury law firms have varying views on which cases they will take.  The reason for this variability in attorney interest is because of the risk, skill, and possibility of success involved in securing compensation for people who have been injured. Accepting a case involves serious responsibility, involves the investment of tens of thousands of dollars, and also a significant amount of time.

There are some rules of thumb that attorneys follow when determining which cases to accept:

(1) What is the liability?

(2) How believable is the case?

(3) Is there an avenue for monetary recovery?

The attorney/client relationship in personal injury matters is very unique and bonds will be formed that will last long beyond the litigation of a case.  However, it is extremely important that attorneys perform their due diligence before agreeing to represent an individual in a personal injury case.  For the client's and the attorney's sake.
