Once your case is closed, it’s closed for good – so make sure it’s handled correctly from the start!
It happens all the time –accident victims ask if it’s possible to reopen a closed case.Their injuries are more serious than they thought, or they need to undergo a surgery they hadn’t planned for when they settled the case. They’ve been out of work longer than expected. They need more money to compensate them for losses that they hadn’t realized they had.
Unfortunately, we have to give them a disappointing answer – that once closed, a personal injury claim typically can’t be reopened, even with the help of a lawyer. No matter how good a reason these victims have for wanting the case reopened, it’s just not how the process works.
