At the mediation hearing the insurance company made an offer for an auto injury claim. I declined to accept it.
My regular physician said I need surgery for my back injury and referred me to a neurosurgeon for a medical evaluation. I am waiting for my HMO insurance to approve the referral. My attorney stated he will need documentation “now” from a neurosurgeon stating I need surgery and $5000 for expert witnesses before preparing to take the case to trial which is in 3 months.
It will take weeks to get the referral, and see the neurosurgeon. Since I don’t have the documentation from a neurosurgeon showing I need surgery now. I told my attorney to go ahead and accept the offer from the insurance company. Can I retract accepting the offer? I have not signed anything yet? Thank you.
