A: Every firm as their own criteria of cases they will handle. They may have released his case for any number of reasons. It could be something to do with the case itself or something to do with their internal policies. Oftentimes cases are released because there is no insurance coverage, the client may have been at fault for the collision, or the firm may have a conflict of interest. I suggest calling them to get more details. If you're not satisfied with the response, then call other P.I. attorneys for a second opinion. Good luck!
