How are personal injury settlements usually handled? 2 Answers as of April 27, 2011

If my attorney has recieved my settlement check in my name from a insurance company, is it legal to take the check, cash it and pay him from that instead of him depositing it into his customer trust account?

You should schedule an appointment with your attorney to discuss what has been done with your settlement . If you are not happy with the answer, you can contact the local bar association to schedule a fee arbitration.
