Had a car accident 8 months ago. I have obtained a personal injury lawyer, but I'm after a second opinion. I have injuries to my neck, back and shoulder. This leaves me unable to drive and sit for long periods of time. It's been difficult to attend appointments and injections in the shoulder and neck for pain relief, as I live in a remote area with no public transport. After the pain relief I am unable to drive or sit for long periods, I have no family or friends close by that I can obtain assistance through. To date my lawyer has been unable to obtain any taxis's or accommodation and states the insurance company does not have to do this and is difficult to get from them. My referral for my shoulder, was misplaced by the lawyer's office. After a few months they had found it and forwarded it onto the insurance company. Additionally, the insurance company requested I attend an appointment. I notified the personal injury lawyer that it was difficult to attend and if it could be rescheduled and put to a place closer to home not 75km away, then they promised to call me back and I never received a call. I did not attend the appointment. Now the lawyer is using this as an excuse for me not attending when it was their fault. The insurance company has admitted liability, however this was admitted only a few weeks after car accident and the lawyer only notified me a few days ago, using the excuse it was sent to me (never received it), and don't understand why personal injury lawyer could not find this out in the time I had been with them. I feel like my lawyer is letting my personal injury claim slip through the cracks, and is hurting my case with the lack of acting and shabby handling. My question is what am I entitled to and what has happened to date with my lawyer, can it hurt my case?
