Q: Why is it that lawyers get such a high percentage of people's settlement I mean don't get me wrong they deserve some but
But they are not the ones that are in pain and I have a law firm that is very rude to me when I call to cheek on the status of my case and no I call maybe every other month and I have never seen or talked to a lawyer only a case manager I feel like they are not handling my case propperly I have been waiting on a settlement since 2015 I couldn't afford to get the sling out until this year and the last time I got a email saying that I didn't qualify until I had the sling removed I had it removed in January and I still haven't received a settlement offer but I am still having problems because of the sing I am in constant pain if I don't like the offer do I have to take it
A: Schedule an in person appointment and go visit with your attorney. Write out the questions you want to ask them so you don't forget any.
One to ask is when is the case going to mediation and why haven't we mediated already? Most cases settle at mediation.
Now, that said, personal injury cases can take a long time to conclude.
