A lot more information would be required in order to assess the value of the case and the proper attorney's fee in the case. Information such as what stage the case is in, injuries, available insurance coverage, strength of liability, whom are the medical bills owed to, etc.

You should discuss with the attorney potentially reducing his fee to accommodate you all based on the limited recovery available. He should not do that until after the medical bills are all reduced, if you want him to handle that aspect of the case too.
