I will answer the last question first: Should you get a second opinion? Probably not. If you already have an injury lawyer working on your claim the most important thing you can do is talk to your lawyer. When people contact us looking for second opinions our normal practice is to pick up the phone and call the potential client's current lawyer, with the client's permission of course, and to try and repair the relationship. Like most problems in life our experience is that clients want a second opinion because of a communication failure. The issue is usually resolvable. If you did your homework in the first place and picked the right injury lawyer it doesn't make sense to switch horses mid-race and doing so can be detrimental to your case. See our article about how to pick the right injury lawyer.
