No more correspondence from my lawyer and I am not sure how to proceed.
October 2, 2018
My lawyer filed a began proceeding on a case when I fell and had a number injuries as a result. I was told in our last call that the location had closed down and there are no funds that we can receive for the case. When i looked up the business the LLC is showing as still active. I am not sure how to proceed my lawyer has given me very little information and this is what the last motions and appearances on the case states.

Have a face-to-face talk with your current attorney. It looks like they obtained a default judgment against the business - because they failed to file an Answer to the lawsuit or have an attorney appear in the case. This may mean there was no insurance (as the insurance carrier would assign counsel), and if the business no longer exists (the 'active' status of an LLC may be irrelevant), you'll have difficulty collecting on that default judgment. You might want to also talk with an attorney who specializes in debt collection to see what options you have, if any.
