This is related to accident claims case (lost my partner in road accident 4years back), I had discussed 15% as the fees to lawyer (wish I had signed an agreement). Now he started bargaining from 25% . He had not said that the charges would be more for high court.
People loose their loved ones in accident and they are not in a mental state to discuss, I do understand that lawyers should get their share but now as he is asking 20%. 20% is too high, what is right % to the lawyer be given? Is it not wrong to ask more than discussed 4years back?
What if I dont give him that much, justice has been done, Do I loose all? He wants cash due to tax implications for that I need to pay the middle person extra? Please guide.
