Let me see what I have
Great – Typical language would state the following: "33.3% of gross recovery if settled prior to filing suit"
Please let me know so we can continue our discussion
Let me scan and attach rather than try to type it all in..
My thought process is this:
If I have $300,000 in medical expenses and ask for $150,000 in pain and suffering and receive these amounts I am paying out of my pocket for medical expenses.
Ex: From the $300k lawyer gets $100k and from the $150k he gets $50k. So I have to pay the insurance company back for medical expenses $300k. Now I have to take the $100k left from my pain and suffering and add to the medical expenses to pay them their full $300k.
I have to leave for about 30 minutes. I will be back then if that's ok?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX worried that would be the answer. Just seems Ethically they wouldn't be allowed to do something like that.
Thanks for the help.
