A girl that was high on meth and drunk fell on my dog while trying to kiss it. My insurance company did almost zero investigation and settled the claim paying her $2500. The 1st attorney hired didn't do anything, I forced them to fire him. The second lied to us making us think we were going to trial and would win only to then call us and tell us a nuisance settlement had been done & was already final. I feel that as an insured homeowner, I had a right to have the claim investigated. I showed everything I have to another attorney. They informed me that none of what has been done here was legal and that I am in the right, have been financially damaged, but that I would have to pay for them to fight it. Nothing was done to protect my rights or do what was in my best in my best interest hereI guess what I am really looking for s a lawyer to take this on a contingency basis. I have spoken to several attorneys that have reviewed all facts in this case, They have clearly told me that what this insurance company and the 2 law firms they hared have done is violate the law and the contracts they had with me. The fact is that people keep saying an insurance company can settle any claim they choose. The law gives consumers the right to a defense and investigation from both the attorney and insurance company, it also entitles the consumer to have decisions be based upon what is in their best interest. This was not done, I asked my lawyer to stop the settlement offer and he refused.
