I realize that the lawyer would get 1/3. I'm also not advocating even going thru a lawyer at this time. I am just saying don't take the first offer, sit back and get your thoughts in order. I know they only gave them seven days but let's face it, if a passenger called them 21 days later and said I want twenty grand, do you really think they will walk away from it when they have the opportunity to get another passenger signed off?
I just don't think this is going to be the only offer. I have a copy of the offer. The 14 doesn't include all the expenses. They will be seperate and everything will be paid within 7 days of sign-off.
Everyone has to do what is best for them. Long drawn out court cases don't work so well for the passenger. I also believe the max to be paid in Italy is 70 thou but I think that is to injured.
