My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Rhode Island
My Lawyer excepted a settlement on a personal injury case without notifying me. I went to a deposition with my laywer and about 2 weeks later he contacted me and stated that he wasn't able to do anything with the case. A year later in December of 2009 he called me and said that he needed me to come in and sign a release because the insurance company is giving him $3000.00. I asked him how much was I going to get he said that he didn't know yet. I asked him why would he settle without knowig what my medical bills are? he said that he would call me back. Well I got my call back and he's stating that I owe $600.00 more than what he settled for. Needless to say I freaked out and told him to call me when he got some solid figures together. When he called again the following day he said that I would get $1000.00 . Please help what can I do about my lawyer? Can he do this?
