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

Posted on October 3, 2016 In The News,Myth Debunker

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 the future effects of the injury.

Bye, Goff & Rohde represents persons injured in accidents, and offers lawyers with significant experience in pursuing claims and, when necessary, conducting trials and appeals to ensure just results for the firm’s clients.  Free consultations are available at 1-800-607-3030.
