North Las Vegas, NV asked in Personal Injury for Nevada

Q: is it good if i change attorneys if the case its being going on for over 1 year?

my attorney changed my case manager twice . the firts case manager was fired , she didnt hep me at all, all the things she had to do ,didnt do. so 5 months went the drain then and there. the new case manager had to start all over again. this new manager was helpful until one point stopped calling me for updates, next thing I know she doesnt work there. I feel like this lawfirm is not doing its best, maybe my case is not priority. also the collision shop they sent my car to took 9 months to "repair" my vehicle. all this it trigger anxiety due to the shop lying to me and keeping me updated with false info. note that i never had anxiety but this events had me really stressed out. another thing is that they didnt prepared me for the deposition which didnt go well . Final point is that, my case is not going anywhere, my car is not well fixed, i got anxietys now. what can i do, the case started in July 2021, so far only a few calls for updates they hardly keep me up to date. thanks!!!!

A: A Nevada attorney could advise best but your question remains open for three weeks. It wouldn't be fair to you or your attorney for anyone here to pass judgment on the file without the chance to closely review it. The decision to change attorneys is yours to freely make, but it is safe to say that cases can easily take more than a year. You mention a deposition, which suggests that the matter has been placed into suit. Once suit is filed, there are things that are not within the law firm's control. Attorneys could be energetic and wrap up discovery as promptly as possible, but they don't have control over getting on the trial calendar. Many courts have also been set back in their dockets due to the pandemic. Therefore, it isn't uncommon for cases to take a few years to run their course, depending on the court system and relationship between opposing law firms. Good luck
