Had to settle case on an alleged injury case while building new home back in 2008. Attorney advised settling would be a lot cheaper than taking the case to court, even though we had all the evidence that the injury never happened at the site.
One of the alleged witnesses gave testimony that calls were made from the site before accident happened. We now have all cell phone records of the person claimed to have been contacted and these calls were never placed, meaning the accident couldn't have taken place on our property. We also have several other lies confirmed in this witnesses depostion.
We paid 28k between lawyer and settlement fees and I'm not happy about this. Do we have a case to sue the party for anything? We were clearly set-up by three 20 year olds looking for quick $$.
