I Had a Consultation with a Cleveland Personal Injury Attorney Who Guaranteed He Could Win Me Lots of Money - Should I Believe Him?
When a Cleveland personal injury attorney makes promises that seem too good to be true, they probably are.
The outcome of your lawsuit is dependent on a number of different variables, and it’s both misleading and inappropriate for an attorney to attempt to “guarantee” the amount of financial compensation you can recover in your personal injury case, particularly if these kinds of guarantees are made early on in the case, before all the facts have been brought to light.
You should also be wary if your attorney promises you that your case will be settled in a relatively short time, like a few months. Although it’s true that some cases can be settled quickly, if your injuries and/or property damage are significant, then you’ll need to wait for your injuries to heal before you can have a full understanding of what kinds of medical expenses and long-term costs you have.
Once you accept a settlement from the insurance company, they are no longer liable for any more financial damages.
When an attorney promises you a specific amount of money during your initial consultation, you should get up and walk right out the door. No attorney can pinpoint the amount of recovery you’ll be awarded, and even the most experienced injury attorneys can only approximate how much you’ll be awarded after they have read through all of the facts.
