If I Lose My Case, Do I Get A Second Chance?


Individuals injured in accidents sometimes ask what will happen if they lose their case.  Normally, a person is allowed to pursue a particular injury claim only once.  If a court case is lost, rules of procedure bar filing the case a second (or third or fourth) time.

Because injury cases are civil cases, even new evidence generally is not a sufficient reason to permit a second case arising from the same injury.

Consequently, an injured party should seek advice from a qualified attorney before settling a case or pursuing a case in court.  The claim should be presented in a thorough and complete manner that accounts for the past and future effects of the injury.
