After y father passed my sister contacted me and said she had filed a lawsuit and offered me %10.. when I tried to question why I only got 10% she threatened to not give me any of the settlement, refused to give me the attny.. name . the suit settled for close to $700K. I got my 10% and she got the rest. At the time I was unaware that it was mesothelioma and did not know she could not have filed the suit with out me. Can I sue her and recover a reasonable share?
All heirs must be included in a wrongful death lawsuit and must sign a release or a waiver of their interest.
If money was paid and your interests were not protected you may be able to still pursue the lawsuit or, depending on the facts, go after your sister.
More information is needed.
