    You do not have to accept it. Let the adjuster know you will be hiring a lawyer to look into both the personal injury and property damage aspects of you case. That may get the adjuster to be more reasonable.

  • My father died from mesothelioma exposed in the trona mines in wyo prior to 1980 can medicare take the settlement

    We have a lawyer but he is telling us that medicare has to decide if they want the settlement and that he will get his share so we are not sure why we even have a lawyer for this. Or why we have had to endure this for this long.

    Andrew’s Answer

    If all of your father's treatment was prior to 1980 there should be a "safe harbor" from Medicare claims. I suggest you ask your lawyer about this. Good Luck

    Andrew’s Answer

    there is a good chance that your brother and sister never told the lawyer that there was another brother. I suggest you call the lawyer and let him know. If he doesn't include you in the case, of if you don't have confidence in the lawyer, you can hire your own lawyer to handle your part of the case.
