What is the name of your state? MA. I was in an auto accident ,I reluctently agreed to a 50,000.00 settlement since it was close to the 3 year time limit to file. I only agreed after lawyer told me medical lein was 7,000,it was actually 24,000,.I found this out after I signed settlement agreement, lawyer knew amount and lied,so he got over 17,000.00 medical lein was 24,000.I was left with approx. 7,000 after other fees,leins ect... legal?
