3 years ago my husband and I slip and fell....I had multiple bulged disks and he had lower spin fracture.
When we signed on with our lawyer we signed on together. We slipped at the same place and same day ect..... They had the floor wet and puddling due to wet carts and my husband slipped with our grandbaby in his arms..I slipped when I went to get the baby who was on the floor at this time.
After 3 years we recieved our settlement....
They charged us 45 Percent each....total of 90 percent of the settlement.
You can imagine our shock ...the check was almost laughable.
My bills got paid and they got 90% out of us...
Now can they do this.....or is this common to charge 45 percent per indivual?
We went almost to court but we didnt because my lawyer wanted us to get spine surgery and we said NO. Even our doctor said he did recommend it..
Anyway can I take my own lawyer to court ? And do we have a chance?
thank you so very much
