Motorcycle Accidents

Ten Questions to Ask Before Hiring an Attorney


Facts: In 2011 accident victim was riding his motorcycle and fell when his bike hit a slick spot in the street near an auto body shop.

His lawyer is asking the court's permission to drop his client's motorcycle accident case. The lawyer has found himself stuck on a case where all the defendants are defaulting and there doesn't appear to be insurance. Also, the auto body shop is out of business.

The Court says to the accident victim's lawyer, essentially, "too bad." You don't have a good enough reason to quit representing this injured accidnt plaintiff. This lawyer will have to handle this matter to its conclusion, one where there is likely to be no money.
