62 Questions Answered
Q. Adjuster want to pay separately for my compensation $2000 and medicals up to reasonable amount directly to provider.
A: The insurance company wants to deal with the medical providers bc the insurer will negotiate a lower bill and save some money. So if your bills are $10,000, the insurance company will offer substantially less to settle the debt and pocket the rest. You want to control the money so you can do the same thing. Attorneys generally recover the gross settlement on the condition that they will satisfy lien holders and indemnify the insurance company.
Q. If California defendant auto PI case settles for full policy 15K. Normal practice plaintiff collects all of the money
A: Insurance companies have a legal duty to protect hospitals for liens related to emergency services. The reason is because pro pers rarely pay off the liens so the law places the burden on attorneys and insurance companies. You might be able to get around this issue if your Release contains a clause providing that you will pay off all medical liens and indemnify the insurance company.
Q. Is it possible to sue a attorney for not giving a valid reason why he chose to disengage the representation of a client
A: It is not illegal for an attorney to remove themselves from a case without stating a reason. Why? Well... because one day an attorney did just that... they removed themselves from representation for a specific reason. Later another attorney found out that the reason given was wrong. So guess what... the first attorney got sued. So now attorneys don't give a reason... but if they do its usually something vague and ambiguous like a conflict of interest... no longer handling these types of cases... or they are just too busy. This is all attorney speak for one of the following: 1) Your case does not have sufficient "value" to justify their continued involvement. 2) Your claim has liability problems... which reduces the value of your claim. 3) You are a problem client and it does not justify continued representation. So the bottom line is your attorney it out. You are not entitled to a reason. Just as you could have fired your attorney without a reason. But you are entitled to your case file. Contact some other attorneys. If they say no... then you've got a problem with your case. Read between the lines. Why are attorney's saying no?
