Missed 7 days work,injured back causing numbness in both hands,7 months of therapy.I got a lawyer and spoke to him once to explain what happen. 11 months later he sends me a settlement check for 7300 dollars and wrote case settle. I feel I had no say in settlement and thought the settlement was not right at all. I did not sign the check or papers he wants me to return to him.How can he settle a case without consulting me and such a low settlement. The DUI driver had full coverage.What can I do ?Also I called and got his assistant and she said that if I got another Lawyer that I would have to pay their fees and then they would put a lien on my home.
