So, I was in a really bad car accident and half of my case was finished and I got a bit of the money. However, he asked for more money to keep the case running and I'm not sure what to do now. The case feels like its been abandoned and I'm really sad about it. What do I do? Was I cheated without realizing?
If the attorney is representing you for a car accident these cases are usually on a contingency and you shouldn't have to pay anything out of pocket. If you don't have any documents from you case you should ask for all documents in your case. It is easy nowadays to burn all of those on a CD and it takes seconds. Get all your documents and a letter from your attorney stating where all of the money has gone and if you still have questions it may be time to seek the input of another attorney.
