My Dad died in road accident six years back (2009) and we filed MACT in Chennai high court (small causes)on the same year with the help of advocate. And advocate fee was discussed as 15% initially.
I paid the court fee and other court charges for the case and in the due course of period lawyer have charged me around 25 thousand as miscellaneous fee.
Now we got the judgement and awarded amount is 1397000 with interest of 7.5 percent.
So my doubt here is how i should pay the advocate. The 15% is on the awarded amount or I have to add the 15% of interest amount also.
