I was "T-Boned" in auto accident; other driver admitted fault. I hired an atty known for strong negotiation skills. At first, I didn't feel injuries; within days, however, I couldn't turn my neck - atty referred me to chiropractor who treated me for 3 mos. med bills were $4200. WITHOUT KNOWING my atty died a month ago, his office continued on my case; submitting my files to other insur co. I was just told today other insur co found discrepancies in my injury claims & only want to pay out $3700; including med costs! Replacement atty admits I'm being lowballed but wants to close the case on this & get it off his desk. Car damages were $6k & I was paid, no ques asked, when my atty was alive. I WASNT TOLD HE DIED!! Can I hire someone else and/or can I get my insur co involved in this?
