Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
im asking to minimize what i owe the chiropractor and have that put on a payment schedule. they currently have a lien on my settlement. additionally they have been in the news for questionable practices which i shouldve researched long before now
no the company in question have sent me the terms of the settlement payout (factoring in the two liens), with the release form which i have not signed
thank you for your prompt response! yes that request to reduce fee did not happen as the attorney and chiropractor work together! this is why i terminated agreement with the attorney, however, i will honor the legal lien. do you not think its feasible to contact the chiropractors main office and request the lien be taken off and a payment plan be put in place? i am not using an attorney so that contact and request would be coming from me
