Legal Question

Asked on: 10/09/10, 7:25 am

I was in a car accident where the othe driver swerved into my lane and hit me @ approx. 45 mph. The other driver was found at fault and my medical insurance was about to run out so I looked for legal rep. I dn't think I was in the right state of mind while looking and hiring my attorny due to my pain and heavy medications. But know that I have the pain and meds. undercontroll I viewed over my lawyers paper work and notice that he gets one third of my settlement, which might be standard but there is a part in which after the settlement and he gets his third, then I have to pay his medical teams and researches their cut. And then I also have to pay my insurance company 48% of my medical bills back, leaving me with earning less than my attorney. That just dosn't seem fair gving him 33and1/3 plus other expenses when I'm the victim laying in bed for a minimum of 8 weeks! thanks for listening, Al
