I let my attorney go in Jan. 2013. A DEMAND was sent without my authority. The Attorney sent the demand the next day for settlement which was denied less than a week later. I had signed a contingency agreement which included " He would not send a demand without my approval . . I now have spoke with opposing insurance company and the Attorney put a lien on the monies that I may receive? In the mean time the ins. co. did closed the claim and I had it reopened. I need to start over with my claim since the Attorney had made so many errors on facts, Therefore, the demand was denied. FYI I opened the case myself in April 2012 and the Ins. Co. had already admitted fault .. I was able to reopen my claim since I was NOT being represented by a Attorney at that time.I am afraid to obtain a new lawyer now. I feel I had been himiliated, embarrassed, cheated and left with no way to turn to but my own wits. I have the facts and paperwork together but just don't understand how to present it.
