    How to Find a New Lawyer for your Camp Lejeune Case

    How to Find a New Lawyer for your Camp Lejeune Case switch attorney sue compensation toxic

    Are you in the middle of a Camp Lejeune water contamination case that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere? Have you found yourself wondering, “The law firm for my Camp Lejeune case is not calling me back. Can I get a new lawyer?”

    The short answer is yes, you can start over with a new lawyer if you’re not happy with the treatment you are receiving from your current attorney. Over the past few weeks, we’ve talked with quite a few claimants who are frustrated with the lack of updates on their case. Many of them have called, emailed, or texted their lawyer a dozen times or more, and are still waiting to hear back from them. Unfortunately, some lawyers get greedy and fail to consider the amount of time that must be invested into each case.

    However, you are never stuck with an attorney, regardless of where you are in the lawsuit process. We are happy to advise you of your legal options and help you take control of your Camp Lejeune injury claim. Contact Kenmore Law Group and schedule a free case review with one of our attorneys.

    Can I get a New Lawyer for my Camp Lejeune Case?

    Yes, it’s perfectly within your right to change lawyers if you’re not getting the representation you deserve. In fact, doing so can help your case in many ways. Quite often, cases remain unsettled month after month, and it’s due to the attorney’s incompetence or not caring enough about their client’s welfare. Of course, changing your lawyer is not a simple decision, and you should be aware of all the consequences before switching to another law firm.

    One concern many people have is that changing lawyers in the middle of a case will cause disruptions that can delay the settlement process. However, an experienced law firm has a system in place to make the transfer process as smooth as possible. When you choose Kenmore Law Group, we will contact your lawyer and work out the terms for ending your current contract. Then, we will obtain your case file and get to work immediately on recovering your payment. We are happy to discuss our methods with you during a free consultation, so don’t hesitate to give us a call.

    How to Fire your Lawyer

    If your Camp Lejeune injury lawyer is nowhere to be found, and you’re tired of not making progress in your case, it may be time to find a new attorney. However, most people are unaware of how this works, and certainly, there are right and wrong ways to go about it. As a general rule, you can do one of two things: Hire a new lawyer, then fire the old one; or fire your attorney and look for someone else.

    We recommend the first option, but if you’re determined to fire your lawyer first, make sure to send them a letter, either by email or postal mail. Yes, you can talk to them in person, but things can get pretty emotional when you’re firing someone. It’s easy to say things that you’ll regret, while failing to communicate points that you wanted to get across. In writing, you can detail the reasons as to why you’re leaving, while remaining polite and professional. You should also include clear instructions on where to send your case file, which you’ll need to give to your new lawyer.

    So why do we recommend that you do things the other way around? If you find a new lawyer first, they can take care of the entire transfer process and ensure that everything is done properly. This way, there are minimal delays in your case, which can cause you to wait longer for a settlement. That’s why we encourage you to schedule a meeting with us as soon as possible. With advice from our attorneys, you can make the best choice for your needs and ensure a successful outcome to your Camp Lejeune water contamination case.

    What can I do if I need a Second Opinion?

    Continuing your case with a new law firm is never an easy choice, but we can assist you with a second opinion from one of our legal experts. We can help you with any concern you have, including:

    • Can I switch my Camp Lejeune lawyer?
    • How can I fire my Camp Lejeune lawyer if I have an active claim?
    • Should I change lawyers if my law firm is not getting in contact with me?

    A meeting with us can help you gain clarity on these issues, and in some cases, clients choose to stay with their lawyers. Others decide to sign up with us, but this is completely up to you. Either way, there is no cost for a second opinion consultation, so please contact us at your earliest convenience.

    What is my Camp Lejeune Case Worth?

    It’s natural to wonder about the amount of damages you can receive from a Camp Lejeune lawsuit. Most injury victims we speak with ask for an average value of these cases, but this is difficult to say for many reasons. For one thing, contaminated water at Camp Lejeune caused many health conditions, including cancer, birth defects, neurological diseases, and blood disorders. Settlement values may be higher for certain illnesses due to the level of harm they can cause. Case values are also determined by personal factors, like the victim’s age, their future medical needs, and their earning potential.

    But if we had to take an educated guess, settlements on the low end are probably worth around $15,000 to $50,000. For those with long-term complications, like cancer patients, settlements may be in the range of $150,000 to $450,000. If there are lifelong injuries, like disability, a victim may be entitled to over $1 million in compensation.

    How long do these Cases take to Settle?

    Like case values, the amount of time to settle a Camp Lejeune claim will vary significantly. Based on our experience with these types of lawsuits, we expect to settle the majority of these claims within 6 to 8 months. Of course, that’s only if there are no unexpected complications, which can add weeks or months to a case. Depending on the issues we run into, it can take up to a year, maybe a year and a half to recover your settlement. In the event the U.S. government refuses to make a fair offer, a lawsuit can be filed on your behalf, which can lengthen your case timeline by 2 or more years.

    Is there a Time Limit to File a Camp Lejeune Lawsuit?

    All Camp Lejeune water contamination lawsuits must be filed by August 10, 2024, which means you have two years from the date that the PACT Act was signed into law. This legislation contains the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, which allows anyone that was harmed by contaminated water at Camp Lejeune to sue the U.S. government for monetary damages. Please note that the courts are extremely strict about the amount of time you have to seek legal action. To ensure that you receive the funds you are owed, contact us right away if you have not filed a Camp Lejeune claim already.
