Legal Question

Asked on: 8/09/13, 8:33 am

My lawyer filed a malpractice suit about few years ago due to a surgery performed very poorly which required additional surgeries which had poor outcomes due to the first failed one. This has left me with low use of a limb. My attorney filed our expert witness identity and general consensus of his agreement with our case in time for the original trial in 2012. A week after filing he states that the expert witness never agreed to see the case our way and thus caused a unsuit. After we paid to refile, he has filed a response to a Demurer from the Defendant without including the defining information given during the defenses deposition where he stated what they are basing the demurer on was never said by him. My attorney has then just now identified (through an agency) two possible expert witnesses who are reviewing the case now even though one of them stated he did not see two of the major points of the case. My attorney has said he will now throw money at the case (ours) and our expert witnesses need to be filed in 3.5 months in time for trial. He has kept us almost completely in the dark, has not prepped us for any depositions, does not object virtually ever. This person came fairly highly recommended. (by the way - we wrote 2/3rds of the Interrogatories and much of the continuing writing). Can I bring in another attorney at this point and how would that play out between them? I am legally disabled because of this.
