I was called in July of 11 and asked to verify my mailing address since the checks were going out in the next 30 days, I called back in Sept and was told to call back in a few weeks, I waited, called back and was told that AZ had paid and checks were going out. I call every few days and cant get a straight answer from the dimwits. THINK ABOUT THIS... AZ paid in full, the lawyer has our money, no doubt it is in an interest baring account. AZ paid in full in late OCT., it is now going on mid-december, who gets the interest? The attorneys should not get it, its our money. They also "held back" 33% of the total payment for "unforeseen" expenses. Will we ever see any records of the additional costs? Or ever see the money owed to us?
Not likely.

I really think we got hooked up with some crappy law firm that is nothing but ambulance chasers, I wish we had some form of action we could take against them for holding our money like they are.

What incentive do they have to get our checks out? Its not like they dont get paid until they send them, they already have our money. I call twice a day just to bug them, morning and afternoon. Always get a different person on the phone, never heard the same name twice.

in this lawsuit the amount approved was 10550.00, only I received in december 4 a check for $ 3541.50 and the rest were lawyers. I believe that this is not fair because we are sicks for the secondary effects of Seroquel, is true that lawyers are fighting for the benefits but not to keep more than half of the check, I agree with 25 or 30% but not so large an amount.

Read Your Retainer

My guess is that on top of fees, there were costs.
It would have been very unlikely you would have qualified to receive any funds had you not had a lawyer. Read your retainer (the agreement you signed where you agreed to have the law firm represent you. You will likely see that costs are different and in addition to fees).

I'm not a lawyer but this makes sense.
