statute of limitations running out
We contacted a lawyer a year ago this month regarding a medical malpractice case. He has had the medical records since that time. In Dec 06 he requested a downpayment of $1000 for a medical expert to review the case which we sent to him along with the signed retainer agreement. The statute of limitations runs out in Nov 07 and the records have yet to be reviewed and he doesn't return my phone calls. It seems rather late in the game to be finding another lawyer but I am worried time will run out without anything being done! What do you suggest?
