Attorney in B. I. case made inequitable distribution of insurance settlement ($22500) despite oral understanding split would be "13, 13, 13". Attorney ($7500); Doctor ($10000); Client ($5000). His explanation: Since the insurance company failed to pay the full amount of doctor's bill the difference ($2500) was assessed against the client thus reducing client's share by $2500. Written contract called for attorney to receive 13 with nothing said about client absorbing an reimbursed doctor fees. Client has not accepted the reduced payment. What recourse do I have to recover the full $7500?
