My relative was killed in a car wreck involving a tractor trailer. The truck was found to be at fault. The lawyer I had representing the estate of said relative kept telling me that we were suing the driver, and the max amount we could get was 1mill dollars. We agreed based on what the lawyer was telling me. The trucking company was found at fault for the truck having faulty brakes. We just so happen to talk to the lawyer representing the other party and told him what we received in settlement. He was flabbergasted and said that the lawyers in our case settled for 3mill and we should have received more than what we got. I will go to the court house tomorrow and get a copy of the settlement and compare it to the paperwork we received from our lawyer. Any other advice if this is true?
