Legal Question

Asked on: 12/11/12, 8:14 pm

I was injured by a vaccine. My lawyer negotiated a settlement for me that I agreed to. I signed and returned the papers to him. A week later just when I was expecting to receive the check, he called me to tell me that he misunderstood the pharmaceutical companies lawyers -- he told me at that time that out he was representing 2 people who were injured by the same vaccine and that the dollar amount that he thought each of us was going to get needs to be split between the 2 of us. Now I will be receiving 1/2 of what I thought I was getting. Since I signed and sent back the original papers is my lawyer breaking the contract? Is there any legal action that I can take, if so what kind of attorney should I look for. If I have no legal action that I can take can I at least ask him to take a smaller cut than the 33% since he made,what I consider a big mistake?
