I was in a car accident in February 2009 that was not my fault. 10K lost wages; 10K medical costs. I am not happy with the attorney I hired. I need to settle now - even if it's for the measely 25K the adverse insurance company wants to give me b/c I have NO money to live on (single mom). Att. doesn't return calls; I feel like I'm going in circles with this guy. If I would settle for the 25K, the attorney would get about 8K and I would get about 16K. Assuming I'm not worried about contracts or my insurance leins, could I call the adverse ins. co. and get them to settle for 20K? The ins. co. would be paying out less, and I'd be getting more that if I went through the attorney. Thanks!I have called this attorney on a daily basis...he is either out of the office or "with a client." I went to his office 2 days and sat there until he came out. He brushed me off and said he had a meeting. I've requested several meetings with him and received no contact. I called another local attorney and he said it was unethical for him to discuss another attorney. What are my remedies? I'm afraid to talk to him (or his office personnel) in a gruff tone b/c they might hold it against me. Thanks again!
