Hi sorry this was a part two no I wanted the surgery the dr was waiting for my lawyer and a few months later I am in discovery and no surgery and when I asked questions to the woman who was doing my interragatories said let us do our job? No answer and my aren't I only spoke to once or twice and his assistant won't call me back and the woman said we will let you know when your deposition is ? Kinda mean? I don't have a clue a year and a half later
I am sorry it sounds like you need to go some place where you'll be treated with dignity and respect.
Speak to a few lawyers before you make a decision.
I hope the surgery goes well and that you feel better soon.
Thank you yes I think they took the surgery off the table I am so confused thank you I am making calls just worried I am in the discovery faze and I only found that out when I received the papers to fill out ..you know the huge packet !! Thank you !!!
Is the issue that your insurance carrier won't pay for the surgery and the lawyer isn't pushing them to approve it?
Dealing with legal matters is hard when you're well, it's definitely much harder when you're not, I hope you have a friend or family member who can assist you and go with you when you interview new lawyers and support you as you go through this process. - Best wishes.
I'm alone completely my ex left me last march a year ago cause of the stress the Dr was on contingency so I am really worried I have had epidurals and the whole nine yards I did hear one assistant mention they were using that surgery now to get more money or to use it for more care needed ...oh I wish you were in CA and would take my case ... And I also Fr her going through discovery even tho o am disabled nothing to so with my injuries than god but I have a ticket to work and they keep calling me all year and she said you're not claiming lost or new income loss? What? She just finished the paper work and dint want to amend it? And because I have disability emotional she didn't wante to claim emotional stress from the accident ..? This all seems really not fair ...she said the would Sig into my background ok I understand that could be bad it did hurt me on a pi case a long time ago...my case is gone on a year an a half and this late in the game do you think a lawyer would take it? Do know of one I have been searxhimg here I surely wish I found this site a year and a half ago ...these lawyers are so mean they have won awards but so mean and I have spoke to my actual attny one and a quarter time one for him to yell at me before he got the story straight about pt and the other about my previous injuries ... He wanted me to get all my MRIs ...which I got most of them but couldn't pay for the others so they said rhey would get them and when I asked if I could get paid while waiting for the ins co to be paid have them hold that money out of my settlement and pay me twice once before they took their money and after ...of course hold the full amount they were asking cause its Medicare and they can take fore ever the assistant said let th do their job and no ...I couldn't ... I am really upset as of late I was happy thinking I was getting the surgery and going to feel better after even tho I was worried I had no one to be with me the two weeks after thw first surgery ...also I want to thank you this all just happened this week and I am stressed and my counselor I was going for something else for said this is stressing me more!!! I am broke from the accident and all my drs were far away and the pain getting rides for sometimes 3 hours one way and omg my first attny assistant sent me to the wrong dr instead of a neurosurgeon she sent me to a neurologist omg a 700 dollar car ride that took a total of 8 hours in the car not including the appt then I wanted to do the tests he said I had damage she aaid no wrong Dr than after that she wanted me to go back I could have had half of it done omg the first law firm was bad too I was so stressed them something happened im the middle of it si they sent me well I think o was fired not sure when they sent me to this " sister" law firm who I thought seemed great even tho treatment had stopped until I went back to the neuro surgeon and pt after a few months which scared me out of therapy for a while .. but then surgery then months after calls and calls no answers at all then the discovery papers ? I am confused I don't think they are working hard to get me a good settlement its a huge company with a huge policy I don't think I will see what its and I am worth they did a bad job on my beautiful car I had to sell it it never drove right omg ahod I delete this to much info ? I am just trying to tell you I think I know I need a new lawyer I did tell the real assistant to treat me with respect and please stop yelling at me and that is when I never received a return call my lawyer is on here from a long time ago I can tell its old but not good points only barely 7 but it says they have one awards ...I dont know and when you Google them they pop eight up all over the place ...should I delete this after you reply? I hope you reply and do you know a good lawyer the might take my case and I don't think with all the mistakes my first lawyer wants 15% and this one the rest to make 45% I think to many mistakes bar should know
I JUST EMAILED YOU LOL AT YOUR FIRM SORRY
I'm sorry that the situation is overwhelming. It does become a problem if you have already changed lawyers. Is there another lawyer at the office that you can meet with? Did you let your lawyer know that his assistant was not professional with you? Tell them that you feel like you're not being treated with respect and that you need more information about your case. Good luck with your case.
Thank you well the other lawyer sent me here way before surgery was an option I emailed you or sent u the info at your firm site I hope u don't mind I have to figure out how to delete that huge post I will ask the admin ...I thought I could do it in my preferences bit the first lawyer who dis send me there did because they said this lawyer was a did better in litigation and they reduced their cut to 15% or something so the total was still 45% but there are other. Issues if you care to read them on your site you have been great help I wish I could hire you ...I have friends back east :) if theu ever need anything I'll send them your way !!! Thank you ...and I have an answer about the assistant on your page where we post our inquiries :) you'll be amazed I am so sad I could never treat anyone like this and I was always in some form of customer service all my life I love ppl
I'm going to delete this thread
