Q: My lawyer have my check for about a month and won't release it to me and I keep asking but no real answer what can I do
They said they were waiting for the insurance company to send them a letter I'm writing their limitations. I emailed and asked the first emailed no response I had to emailed again and asked for a update and was told they will have a update still no update about when will my check be released to be and this has been a month again that the insurance company send it to them and the ask do the have permission for the check to be endorse and to sign the release papers I still haven't got the papers to sign and no check.
A: A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Some of the details aren't fully clear here, but it sounds like it's possible you haven't yet signed the release papers. If that's the case, insurance carriers typically want those papers in their hands before issuing payment. If there are other issues, such as trying to negotiate medical liens, etc., only your attorney would know about those. Good luck
Daniel Michael Luisi agrees with this answer
A: Sometimes there are delays in negotiating insurance liens on your settlement recovery. Sometimes, someone went on vacation, or the papers are just sitting there on someone's desk. Putting your inquiry in writing in the form of a certified letter probably wouldn't hurt.
