Grocery store adjuster offered 8000I talked with my lawyer today,Pico the adjuster for more, I lawyer called me back,And the amount is still $8000 dollars My lawyers are Morgan and Morgan
That is a large Nationwide Law Firm. If you do not like the advice that they are giving, I would ask that a partner take a look at the file and give their opinion. Not having all the information in front of me makes it very difficult as to whether the amount they are giving you is fair. I would get a second opinion with a partner first

What do u mean by partner
In a large law firm you probably have an associate working on your case. They report to a partner who reports to a senior partner. You want someone higher up with more experience to look over your case.

I live in Florida The other company is going to file for bankruptcy so I sent a email to the Lawyer handling the case that I will take the $8000 that is so low but this will help financing my own Semi Tractor, Ez for me to get work for the Semi.

if that is the case about the company then taking the money and run maybe the best alternative

always best to get something as opposed to nothing in the end

Hi Michael. I'm very sad how this is ending, I have expressed to them many times that faulty equipment evidence was crucial to this case, even I knew that. However eight months have passed and they tell me it's too late together evidence, the working attorney his name is***** feel like this was just an easy catch for them and they had no intentions to go very far with this. They only winner here is, Morgan and Morgan, in southeast grocers, well I hold nothing against them, and it's not my goal to tarnish anyone. I will just hope by the grace of God they will value all future clients the same.
And that ***** ***** and his Sons what oversee many of their claims. After all his slogan is, (For the people.)
Mr. Bradley you will always be in my prayers, you're the only one at extended your hand to me and no further cost.
At this point I guess tomorrow I would go to FedEx office print out the paperwork signed and return them to their office.
Your comment is greatly appreciated.
Take care.William Guy
