My medical bills plus lost wages were paid for by PIP. We were told that we will have to reinburse that money to the insurance company
I have to backtrack on my prior post concerning subrogation of PIP. The law in Kansas is somewhat convoluted. The current collection of PIP statutes indicates that $4500 in medical payments must be available, and the $4500 might not be subject to subrogation, but the excess of $11255 definitely is subject to subrogation.

We have a contingency agreement with our attorney. We feel that he is not presenting a strong enough case for us. My husband has three screws permanently placed in his knee. Attorney says he can't get future medical for that. As for the permanent injury and ongoing pain in my thumb, $74,701.00 after all expenses paid, I think is not enough.

You can always consult another attorney -- usually at no cost. If that attorney believes he/she can do a better job for you, they will advise how to terminate your agreement with the other attorney. But you will probably owe that former attorney something for the a "work" he has done to date.



If a civil suit has already been filed, a simple substitution of counsel form will take care of changing your representation in court.



It's your case, and your prerogative to change counsel. It just won't be "free" to do that. If you don't have cash to pay off the existing attorney, you may have to give him a lien for a small %% of your settlement -- on top of what the new attorney will take.



Fun, isn't it?
