Rear End Crash Case with Attorney Problems…

Submitted By: Trudie (FL)

I was involved in a rear end collision in Lake Wales, FL. The other driver was charged with careless driving. I hired an attorney who I only talked with on the phone 2 times in 11 months.

He sent a demand to our insurance companies without us seeing it, or reading it, or discussing it with him. I’ve never even seen him face to face!

What is our next step? I feel like he misrepresented us and got the information wrong. Can we fire him? What do we do with the insurance company? Thanks for any help you can give.

Answer

Dear Trudie,

Trudie:

Because you are currently represented by an attorney the law prohibits us from rendering an opinion. There is a contract between you and the attorney. For another attorney to interfere with that contractual relationship is considered Tortious Interference with a Contract. We would advise you to visit with your attorney to discuss your issues.

Best of luck,
