Personal injury case

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Pennsylvania

I have settled a case in 2004 for personal injury. Now I have a case from a rear end car accident which happened in 2002. I found out today that the defending attorneys in my first case, were hired to be the defending attorneys for my new case. My question is....is this allowed or is it considered a conflict of interest of some sort? I feel that they would not be fair. But I would like to know if there is any reason they should be asked to step down? I have asked my attorney and he did not know.

Answer

They can be against you twice if that is what you mean...
