My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: CA
My new attorney recently settled my case. My prior attorney did nothing and about a week before the statute of limitations would expire he told me he was not going to file a lawsuit on my behalf. That's when I went to my new attorney. He did 99.9% of all of the work. The insurance somehow know of the prior attorney and wants to add the prior attorney to the insurance check. Is the insurance company obligated to add him to the check?
