I went to mediation and signed an agreement with contingency

Customer Question

I went to mediation and signed an agreement with contingency that depends on my health care insurance negotiation but I agree to receive certain amount and feel like being ripped off by the mediator and my attorney. Because they were pressuring me that
I will get nothing in the court, can I still back out of the agreement?

Hello

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 1 year ago.

The general rule is no. However, you may ask the court to set it aside. You would have to show fraud or duress and this can either lead to a decision or a settlement which may be better than the current agreement.

Kindly rate me positively.
