Any time you choose to work with a personal injury law firm, it is definitely important to have a connection built on quality communication and trust.  Personal injury cases are often quite sensitive and demand that you provide a lot of personal details. For that reason, it is best to have a personal injury attorney in Boston with whom you feel comfortable and have clear  communication. So the question is, what should you do if  you are working with a lawyer who does not fit into that category? Most likely, you can switch to a new lawyer. The reason for switching could be the current lawyer’s  poor communication, work ethics, or many other factors. 

This post will discuss some important factors to consider before employing a new lawyer for your injury lawsuit. After all, navigating the situation wisely will save you time, money, and several potentially awkward conversations. 

Have you thought about switching to a new lawyer to handle your case ? If so, here are a few things to consider before switching to a new personal injury attorney: 

  • First of all, review your agreement or contract. Understand clearly how much you have to pay to your current lawyer for the services they have rendered and any fees they have paid. Would you be violating  any clause of the contract or agreement by terminating the relationship? 
  • Second, it is wise to openly discuss your concerns with your current  Massachusetts personal injury attorney. They may have additional information related to your case that you are simply not familiar with. Perhaps they will be able to clear up  your concerns while explaining any  behavior that you have not been happy with. 
  • Furthermore, before firing your law firm, it is suggested to reach out to a  reputable  lawyer in Boston or your respective region. You may find their approach quite similar to those of your current lawyer, or you may  discover that your concerns or questions are perfectly valid. Talking about your case with an unbiased attorney may give you valuable insights into the course you should take. 
  • If, in the end,  you choose to switch to another personal injury lawyer,it is vital to put your final decision in writing. In many cases, you  may have to have  a one-on-one meeting with your  current lawyer. Even in this case, you might be requested to give them a written notice highlighting your decision. This will ultimately protect you from the current lawyer making  the switch unnecessarily difficult. 


Before  you terminate your agreement or contract with your current attorney, it is extremely important to find a new lawyer who will accept your injury lawsuit. It will not only eliminate the unwanted challenges or delays, but will also ensure that your lawsuit continues to make positive progress. 

Always choose  a personal injury law firm with a dynamic team of lawyers known for their expertise in the industry and optimal results for personal injury lawsuits. When you work with an experienced lawyer, you will always feel like you are working with a close friend. Attorneys with experience in personal injury lawsuits  understand that they  are quite a personal and emotional affair; they go out of their way to provide clients with a welcoming and comfortable environment. 

So if you, too, have had a less than ideal experience with your current Boston personal injury attorney, then the time has come for you to experience an unmatched level of customer service with a highly-experienced and recognized lawyer.
