I am about to settle on two car accidents. one occured 4 yrs ago the other 5. every lawyer, of course, claimed I would get 100,000 each case.
Now with both combined I am offered an amount of 63,000. seems good but we owe hospital and doctors 37,000 and the lawyer about 23, 000.
they say the county of the accidents is veery conservative and we can not win the case. all agree it is not my fault. this will not even pay my time out of work because of it. this seems wrong but to fight in court will cost money I don't have.
any advice?. I am the loser and of course the hospt. and lawyer get paid. is this ethical?
