Q: What should I do I have an attorney that ain't doing no good and my minor son has been injured in a car accedent
My son was 15 at the time he is 17 fixing to be 18 in October so it's been a few years they were at my at a complete stop and got hit from behind from a guy that has Farmers insurance The Farmer insurance people don't want to pay no more than $4,900 and he's whiplash is the pain is suffering keeps reoccurring it don't go away it might be fine one day and then it comes back my attorney is in Texas I didn't know at the time and they're not wanting to go to court they're not wanting to settle out I don't know what to do
A: An Oklahoma (or Texas?) attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. No one here could pass judgment on your son's case or his attorney. An attorney would need to see the file. You posted under Oklahoma, because that's where you may be located. But you mention a Texas attorney. It isn't clear if that's because that's where venue was determined to be, or that you went with a Texas attorney you already knew. A starting point might be to have a discussion about where the case is going, what was done on the case, if there are liens, the statute of limitations, etc. and to outline what your options are. It sounds like you may have reached an impasse with the carrier, and without contemplating placing the matter in suit, that $4,900 figure might not change - but again, an attorney would need to see the file to give you meaningful input. I hope your son has a healthy recovery. Good luck
