Can You Change Personal Injury Lawyers?

Deciding to pursue a personal injury claim is a significant step towards securing the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Unfortunately, not every lawyer is going to be equipped for your case. So what happens if you’re partway through the process and feel that your current legal representation isn’t meeting your expectations? You may find yourself asking: “Can I change my personal injury lawyer?” or “Is it possible to switch my accident lawyer before settlement?” The good news is, in Victoria, the answer is yes.

Understanding Your Right to Change Lawyers

In Victoria, clients have the right to choose and, if necessary, change their legal representation at any point before the settlement of their personal injury claim. This decision can be driven by various factors, including dissatisfaction with the level of communication, a lack of progress, or simply feeling that your case isn’t being given the priority it deserves.

When Should You Change Your Lawyer?

Many clients come to us with concerns about their current legal representation, and whilst you don’t need a specific reason, common issues include:

  • Lack of Communication: You’re finding it hard to get updates, or your calls and emails remain unanswered.
  • Slow Progress: Your case seems to be moving at a snail’s pace with little to no advancement.
  • Dissatisfaction with Strategy or Advice: You’re not convinced by the legal strategies or advice provided.
  • Not Feeling Prioritised: Experiencing a ‘revolving door’ of legal representatives handling your case and feeling palmed off.

If these concerns resonate with you, it might be time to consider a switch. Carbone Lawyers prides itself on providing a consistent, empathetic, and personalised legal service, ensuring you’re not just another case number.
