does he have to repay this amount $10,000 back?
It all depends. Sometimes despite the best efforts of attorneys and their staffs, mistakes can happen. You don't give any details about the nature of the mistake. Perhaps they merely distributed it to you too early and it is only a matter of timing as to when you will get the proceeds, or perhaps they sent you an incorrect amount and some of your medical bills need to be paid first. You should have either a schedule of distribution or a settlement accounting sheet which should state quite clearly what you are supposed to receive as a net distribution. My suggestion is to call your lawyer and find out what is going on. Chances are good that this can be satisfactorily explained to you.See question

It all depends. The statute of limitations varies from state to state. In some states it is as short as one year, in other states it is two or even three years. You need to consult a lawyer in New Hampshire who is versed in personal injury law. You should do so as soon as possible, because if there is only a short time left on your limitations period, you do not want it to expire whole you are looking for a lawyer. Good luck.See question

Many lawyers will not take malpractice cases for people who had cosmetic surgery because juries tend to view them negatively.

It sounds on the low side to me, but I only have the very sketchy facts from your note to Avvo.

Statutes of limitations vary from state to state and can be as short as a year. I do not know what the limitation period is in Maryland, so get to a lawyer quickly.See question
