Thanks so much for your advice Mr. Ferrante. We have no insurance for these attorneys to contact for more money and from my understanding they already informed him that the case is settled(they even showed the settlement amount to be received). So I highly doubt the lawyers are trying to help with more money.

Is there a Medicaid lien or perhaps NYC Dept of Social Services lien? This would be the case if Medicaid paid any medical bills (doubtful in car accident case) or if your fiancé received support from the city (ie. food stamps, etc).

How about a family member who your fiancé lived with at the time of the accident. It would not have to be his insurance policy, it could be his mother/father/brother/sister/aunt's.

Well Mr.Ferrante, he recieved medicaid and foodstamps after the case was consider settled and not during his active case. Wouldn't the attorneys at least still be able to inform him that the other portion of his check was withheld due to unpaid gov't balances even though the case was settled when he applied and recieved gov't aid?

Oh and by the way Its only My fiance, Daughter and I at this residence. Our daughters medical bills are controlled and we are not legally married yet for him to be held accountable for my debt I'm handling.

It seems as though you have had a big communication problem with your current attorneys. If you feel unhappy you always have the ability to contact a different attorney.

Final question: at the time of your accident, who did your husband live with? Even if part time?

Part time, his elderly grandmother and myself.

If his elderly grandmother or you had a vehicle with insurance at the time of the accident, there may be additional coverage worth pursuing. This is the only thing I can think of that would cause such a delay. You have received excellent advice here from all of the attorneys who have responded. I wish you the best of luck.

I agree if we had a vehicle with insurance, it would be worth the time and maybe lack of communication however we do not have a vehicle. So this big communcication gap is unethical. My fiance and I are entirely grateful for the advice we recieved here from all these helpful attorneys. Thanks a bunch for the needed luck. :)
