I was in a car accident i was a passenger of the at fault driver. I was injured and my lower back has a disk herniated and l4-l7 is messed up my attorney said he is charging me 25% of the total bill (gross). I have 5000 kaiser 2000 chiropractor . My question is i received a med pay check at my house for $2000 for the med pay on the driver of the car is was in. My attorney said give him the check i did and he told me that he would lower the bills by 2000 or so so.(1500 from kaiser and 500 from chiropractor) less i wouldn't have to pay back so much. My question is should he keep the med pay check and take 25% out of that also or is that mine to keep and can i just pay the bills back when i get the bodily injury for the remaining 5000 and pain and suffering? too late to get check back?Is this a good deal? should i look for a new attorney if i do how much will i owe him if all he did was get the bills from kaiser and the chiropractor he didn't even send it in yet because i am still going under treatment. The chiropractor sent her bill in that's why they got that. My back feels terrible and i really don't want to be left with something minimal after bills. Is he entitled to the 25% out of the med pay? Is it wrong of me go demand for that back? the driver probably has the minimal in Insurance but he had 2000 med pay. I'm in CA
