My husband slipped & fell in a wholesale store on aug 31, 2011. He broke his hip, had surgery & PT. He hired a lawyer & signed a contract to represent him few days after the accident. The last time we heard from the lawyer was more than a year ago in spite of several calls to his office & letters sent. He never returns our calls. Can we lost by default due to our lawyer's negligence? Can you suggest our next course of action? The accident will be two years next month. Thank you!
