Q: My frienld has a slip&fall suit her attorney calls and tells her that the other side wants to settle out of court
They agreed to pay $1,000,000 her attorney calls her back and asks if she'll take $325,000 what's up with that she's lost her home car is injured they've said they were at fault agreed to pay the million out of court why is her attorney trying her with $325,000 we don't get it what are missing
A: That's a mysterious question - didn't the attorney give an explanation? That's step one. If no explanation, your friend should ask for an emailed explanation. If he/she gave an explanation, what's the problem with the explanation? Not understandable? Not believable? In either scenario, your friend can consult another attorney to review it, for which she would need to pay a consultation fee.
A: Why isn't she asking her attorney this question? Perhaps they offered $1 million and then changed their minds.
A: Your friend is entitled to get a second opinion from an attorney.
