Dallas, TX asked in Car Accidents for Texas

Q: I am currently working with a Personal Injury attorney

they have already agreed to settlements with 3rd party and UIM although I am still actively receiving medical treatment. I feel they are trying to rush the case since they know their amounts are maxed and can not get any further funds however they want to split the leftover evenly. my medical bills came to 120k then both other parties in the vehicle were about 90k. Originally they were going to split the difference with me receiving the largest portions due to my higher expenses, but somehow they now state the expenses before medical deductions are within 1k of each other. I requested the medical bills for my wife and myself to confirm and sure enough, that's where I found the large difference between the two. with all that being said should i continue to press the matter or leave it be since we are already settled with the two. I still need another 2 surgeries and my wife needs facial reconstruction. i have expressed this to them but they said it does not matter since they have settle

A: A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It may be hard to get meaningful guidance for something like this on a public forum. Aside from the fact that an attorney is actively representing you, this is a highly complex case involving UIM coverage, multiple parties, pending future medical care, among other possible issues. It would be difficult to sort out important details based solely on the brief description here. Good luck
