Q: How much is my lawsuit worth? My attorney was negligent. He didn't submit any of my paper work by the deadline.
My lawyer didn't submit any of my paper work at all to meet the deadline. He openly admitted that he has lied to us for months now about our case when all along it had been closed/dismissed for months. He said we can do 1 of 2 things.. 1. Give him an amount we feel we should receive 2. Go seek other legal advice from a different attorney. Id rather settle up with him, but I have no idea how much I should ask for. My medical bills and lost wages from the incident is $23k, as far as pain and suffering from this whole mess, the lying and decietfullness from my attorney and emotional stress the passed 3 years I do not know how to put a dollar amount on that. What is the minimum amount I should settle for?
