Personal injury case. Received reinbursement for out of pocket meds only during first year. Now going on 3 years, and no status report.
If you haven't already done so, schedule an office conference with your lawyer as soon as possible. You may want to mention when scheduling that appointment that you have concerns regarding the statute of limitations.
Cold-calling a law office and playing phone tag with a busy lawyer can be a frustrating experience, so scheduling an office or phone conference is the best way to go.
Some lawyers want you to contact them regularly to give them updates and to request updates on your case. If you are contacting your lawyer and you are not getting a response, that is not acceptable. I would call the lawyer's office to request a meeting, which your lawyer should be more than willing to do. If you are not getting a response to that request, I would send a letter to the lawyer, outlining your attempted contacts, and your concern with the lack of Response. My experience is that if a letter is sent, you will be getting a quick response.
