3 Reasons Why Your Car Accident Case Might be Rejected by a Top West Virginia Personal Injury Law Firm

Service page featured image with Time Miley and The Miley Legal Group logo.

As with most other West Virginia Car Accident Law Firms, we receive a number of inquiries and questions each and every day. It is our priority to assist each caller the best we can, but sometimes there are reasons why our firm will not take a case.

Here is a list of 3 reasons why our firm, or any other firm for that matter, may not take your accident injury case:

  1. The amount of money you receive at the end of your claim will not increase with a lawyer’s help. There are some limited circumstances where a lawyer can not add value to your claim. Respectable law firms will share this with you, allowing you to put as much money as possible in your pocket.
  2. You waited too long to make the call. The law requires that a lawsuit be filed 2 years after the “date of incident.” This means that a case has to be worked up, information gathered, insurance investigations and other discovery needs to take place within that window. The timeline only shrinks the longer an accident victim waits to call an attorney.
  3. Your case has been rejected by 2 or more other law firms. If you have called and spoken to a number of law firms and no one is willing to help you, you probably do not have a case. Although our office will try and provide you with the best advice, sometimes there are no options.

Our staff will be very upfront and let you know if we think your claim will be hard to prove or too costly to provide a benefit to you, most law firms don’t, they just never call you back or make an excuse why they can’t help you.
