I got a lawyer during an injury accident that was not my fault. The insurance company of the other party settled and my lawyer mailed me a check of $4000 out of the $11000 that was settled. My understanding was that the $7000 was for medical and legal fees. But to my surprise, I just received a letter from the collection agency that my medical bill for the accident has not been settled. I just called my lawyer but he said he only paid himself and the chiropractor, but did not pay the $1170 medical bill. Please, what should i do?I called my lawyer, he was so rude on the phone. He said he's making a generous offer for me to pay half of the bill and he will match it for the collection agency. He was aware of this bill but the bill was not on the settlement statement i signed.
