Attoney has had my case regarding wrongful death of a loved one as a result of a fall and hip fracture at a hospital. I was initially informed that medical records would be obtained and sent to the medical expert for review and an opinion. Next I was told that they were waiting to hear back from the hospital to determine a presuit settlement. Now a year later, I'm told that the hospital refuses to discuss settlement because my atty doesn't have an expert opinion. My atty informed me that a preliminary medical assessment was done a year ago but not the actual opinion. What are the consequences of revoking my POA? This is heartbreaking to me and my family as it's been a year and we see no progresss. Can I ask for a copy of the docket sheet in the file to determine what has been doneThe statue of limitations expire in 1 year and it appears that in the past year, we were told that things were done when they were not. I'm not asking for any attorney on this site to second guess my atty, I just want to know my rights. Can I revoke POA and go with anothe firm? If the other firm obtains a medical expert opinion to support our claim, can something be worked out with the new firm and current atty regarding payment of fees if a settlement is reached for services already rendered.
