    just read where a drunk driver killed a guy & the insurance co. paid out 1.1 million to settle.
    family got just over 600k
    attornys took 440k + 50k in expenses.

    there s/b a law but the fuckin attys write them so we're fucked.

    and its not like the attys spent any time in a court room. its not like tv. injury firms just make a few calls to the insurance companys to hash it out. they don't even know where the courthouse is.:facepalm:

    injury lawyers 1/3rd fee plus expenses is like the mechanic who fixes your car on your vacation in bumfuk nowhere & when you ask how much you owe, he says, how much ya got?

    their fee is not based on any work they did like every other profession has to do....fucking criminals.

    The people don't have to pay a 1/3. It's a negotiated fee. They are free to find someone who will take less.

    what most should do is negoiate with the insurance co yourself first & get an offer in writing, then take it to the atty & tell them they get their % on anything over that.

    injury attys are solid bloodsuckers, they dont negotiate their fees or undercut their fellow bloodsuckers.
