Can we go after are attorney for not paying all medical bills

1 Answers. Asked on Aug 01st, 2017 on Legal Malpractice - Florida
More details to this question:
our auto accident happened in 12/15, we hired an attorney to handle our case and to make sure the medical bills were paid as part of the settlement, a year later we received a bill from a surgery center where a procedure was preformed. According to the surgery center they submitted their bill numerous times before the case was settled and to date still have not received payment. The surgery center was instructed to contact us for payment. What are our legal recourses if any?

maybe - depends on the details of who was supposed to pay what with the settlement. YOu will need to retain a lawyer at an hourly rate/retainer to review the issue and go from there.

Legal Malpractice
The vast majority of attorneys act ethically and diligently representing the interests of their clients. But what happens when you hire a lawyer who has a conflict of interest, makes errors in your representation, is negligent or breaches his or her fiduciary duty? In those instances, you may have grounds for a legal malpractice complaint or lawsuit. Law firms that represent the victims of legal malpractice can help you file a complaint with your state's lawyer registration and disciplinary commission, while also filing a civil lawsuit against your former attorney.
