I am in a suit against my car ins. company involving my neck injury in a car accident . I am ill, recovering from a recent operation and ongoing medical problems, pregnant (high risk) and unemployed. I cannot afford costs associated with ongoing discovery, etc.. and I also don't feel that I'm physically able to go through with a depo. any time soon. I would really like to settle the case now. I was told by counsel that I may still have to go forward with the depo. anyway because opposing outside counsel will more than likely want to "pad their bills" before settling. This seems unethical to me and I don't feel that I should be responsible for paying for any unnecessary costs. Also, my attorney is ignoring my email requests for a written settlement update.
