I signed my settlment paperwork and everybody is on the same page with everything the defense attorney said they been ordered the check from the insurance company but it hasnt come yet. Say it may be tomorrow when the defense attorney recieves it.
You did not indicate how long it has been since reaching the agreement. You should ask your lawyer, especially if it has been more than 30 days. Insurance companies are notoriously slow in cutting checks. The funds must go to the trust account and clear that account pursuant to the rules of ethics. This generally takes 7-10 more days to be sure the funds have cleared that account. You are not describing anything out of the ordinary. You will have to be patient, and direct your questions to your lawyer.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
