Q: I sued someone for injuries I got in a car accident (they were at fault).
I've decided I don't want to deal with this case anymore. Is there a way to just drop it now, or do I have to see it through to the end?
A: Did you contact an attorney?If they are at fault you should get something. If you served them and are part way in, an attorney might take it on depending on the case. Members of the Wisconsin Assn for Justice give free consultations--why not call one of them now?
PS yes you can drop it but don't tell the other side that until you talk to a member of the WAJ.
who you should call Monday.
All the best for Thanksgiving.
A: You can always settle your case and dismiss the lawsuit. Do you have an attorney? If so, talk to him or her about settling and dismissing.
