Why can’t a lawyer guarantee me that he will win my auto accident case?
There are many variables of a Florida auto accident case. These include how serious your injuries are, the extent of damages, whether you can work again, and the attorney you have working on your case. No matter how successful a Sarasota accident attorney has been in the past for previous clients, he or she is not supposed to guarantee future case outcomes.
According to the Florida Bar, it is unethical for lawyers to guarantee any client that they will win a case. In fact, attorneys are not supposed to make this promise. However, highly qualified attorneys can show you successful past results on similar cases. They only guarantee they are allowed to make is that they will do everything necessary—investigate, prepare, and negotiate—to get you the results you are looking for.
In order to win your case, you need an attorney who:
- Knows the law
- Has great past successes
- Has tried or settled cases similar to yours
- Knows what it takes
- Has available resources
- Has great peer reviews and client testimonials
- Can promise you that he will put forth his best effort to get the best possible outcome in your case
Not every personal injury lawyer is the same or has the same experience and successes. This is why it is critical to your case that you speak with different attorneys when deciding upon hiring a law firm to fight for you.
