Hi yes all his APPTS and the pt were liens and every thing from my attny was a Leon the Dr said he was waiting for the approval from my attny which they said takes sometimes 3 weeks I have asked rhis question and that is the drs answer and the lawyer won't answer first it was get ready and stop some of my Meds which i did and I got all my vitamins then all of a sudden it was get my old MRIs this was the second time I spoke to my actual lawyer? I told him the assistant wasn't returning my calls so then a new aasiatant was helpful bit he told me now it would be a while for the surgery so after a few months of severe pain back on pain Meds and haven't heard and now doing discovery papers I really want this done before a settlement and the woman hwlping me with the discovery papersto put where it said after care because I agent seen my Dr for surgery or another at she said put surgery well there were two surgeries involved and I need them and what if I need more after those I dont want to settle with out those under my belt there is a court date soon to tell where we are and I need to speak with my attny and find out .... I read somewhere also I don't know if this ks truw that if you need surgery and haven't had it before the settlement that its still a surgery case? Is rhia true? Bit still and imo not the lawyer what if he gets in there and there is more damage or complications I want this to happen before amy settlement we dot and can't predict surgery right ? Has any one heard or seen anything like this? Sorry if this is hard to read its hard to correct I am on my cell typing and its being difficult thank you all

Yes, you should speak to your attorney directly -- not an assistant, not an associate, but the lead trial attorney -- and get a clear, direct response to your questions. You have a right to know what's going on with your legal case and your medical care. Having said that, the fact that discovery has begun before your treatment is completed is not necessarily unusual or bad. As for your concerns about completing treatment before settlement, you should express those to your lawyer clearly and see what he or she says. There may be legitimate and valid reasons for why your lawyer is doing what he or she is doing, but you have a right to know those reasons.
