Ok, I'm confused. My attorney put together a list of bills and sent it to the adjuster but did not include a demand amount nor did he include pain and suffering. I don't see any description on his part pertaining to my injuries. My car was totaled, I had back and teeth injuries. My bills and treatment plans total 21,000. The adjuster initially offered 14,000 (probably because my attorney for got about some bill... I informed him and send another letter to the adjuster). The adjuster offered 21,500. That only covers my bills and plans... no compensatory. And after the attorney takes 33%, the remaining will probably not cover all of my bills and treatment plans..... What should I do.
He doesn't appear to want to take it to court but he will.I understand that about the insurance company but I am now questioning my attorney. When I do ask questions for example about not specifying an amount he then ask me if I want him to... I don't know im not an attorney. Also looking at sample demand letters, mine looks nothing like what I have seen. The 2 yr mark is drawing near. About 3 weeks away now. He informs me that if we take it to court I will have to pay him more and there is no guarantee that we would get more.... So he's trying to get me to settle. My teeth were perfect and now I hate smiling. Two were chipped, four were loose and fractured, thank goodness they did not fall out.... But my dentist says that I will more than likely have to get false teeth sooner than later... I'm only in my 20's! (sorry for the typos)
