How To Tell When You Might Need A New Personal Injury Lawyer

As a personal injury victim, it is important to have a lawyer who can help you navigate the legal process and fight for your rights. However, not all personal injury lawyers are created equal. Sometimes, it may become necessary to change your personal injury lawyer if you are not satisfied with the level of service or representation that you are receiving. In this blog, we will discuss the signs that it might be time to change your personal injury lawyer, and why you should consider the Shook & Stone for your legal representation for personal injury cases occurring in the state of Nevada.

Lack of Communication

One of the most important factors in any client-lawyer relationship is communication. A personal injury lawyer who does not communicate regularly with their client may be neglecting important aspects of their case. By not being familiar with your case they won’t be able to best represent you, which can result in a reduced settlement at the end of your case. 

If you find that your lawyer is not returning your calls or emails in a timely manner, or if they are not providing you with updates on your case, it may be time to consider a change. A good personal injury lawyer should keep you informed about the progress of your case and should be available to answer your questions.

Poor Representation

Another sign that it might be time to change your personal injury lawyer is poor representation. If your lawyer is not putting in the effort to build a strong case, or if they are not fighting for your rights as aggressively as they should, it may be time to find a new lawyer. Your lawyer and their team should be working hard to uncover evidence supporting your case through depositions, negotiating settlements to your maximum benefit, and ensuring you are getting medical treatment to best help you recover from the original accident that caused you to contact them.

A good personal injury lawyer should be knowledgeable about the law and should be prepared to use that knowledge to fight for your rights. If you doubt your lawyer and their teams knowledge of the law you may want to consider making a change.

Conflicts of Interest

A personal injury lawyer who has a conflict of interest may not be able to represent you to the best of their ability. For example, if your lawyer is representing another party who is also involved in your case, they may not be able to give you the attention and representation that you deserve. Be sure that you are familiar with conflicts of interest as they pertain to Nevada law.

If you suspect that your lawyer has a conflict of interest, it may be time to find a new lawyer who can represent you without any conflicts so that your interests are fairly represented.


Personal injury cases can be complex and require a high level of expertise to handle effectively. If your lawyer is inexperienced, they may not be able to represent you to the best of their ability.

Experience can often mean your situation won’t be new to your attorney and they will have been through similar processes many times before. This can help to not only speed up the pace at which your case can be resolved, but also maximize your settlement potential.

Unprofessional Conduct

Finally, if your personal injury lawyer is engaging in unprofessional conduct, such as not showing up to court on time or not following through on promises, it may be time to find a new lawyer. In the state of Nevada you should also be wary of any lawyer that has representatives showing up at the scene of an accident, using tow truck drivers, or paramedics trying to convince you to sign up for representation from them. This behavior is disallowed by the Nevada State BAR and should never be engaged in.

A good personal injury lawyer should be professional in their conduct and should have a strong track record of providing excellent service to their clients.
