Tiffany Johnson and Anderson Johnson III, individually and on behalf of minor children, filed a lawsuit against their personal injury attorney following their car accident. They claim that their personal injury attorney was negligent, and are also suing for fraud and breach of fiduciary duty. The plaintiffs claim that in 2009 they hired the attorney after a serious automobile accident. The attorney then settled the suit for only $60,000 without their consent. If this is true, it is clearly a breach of his fiduciary duty.
The family is now seeking court costs, damages and attorney fees. They feel they have been unjustly represented and are not happy with the settlement amount or how the settlement occurred.
