  • 2Settlement Money for Car Accident?

    Hello , Me and my wife had a car accident in California . Another car lost control , came from the other side of the highway and hit us . Our car was added to my insurance company and they paid $ 21,000 for the car. I had a fracture in my finger ( in the joint of the finger palm ) . I had to wear a splint for six weeks . My wife had very bad bruises on the chest portion and knee hit the dashboard. In addition to physical injury , mental injury is over . She lost her confidence , she wakes up screaming in the dream and she can smell or see vehicle air bags being beaten . She is not the person I used to be . I was not thinking that psychiatry should come out of the shock on their own. The situation is much improved, but still needs to improve a lot. Our hospital bills were around $ 4,000 . I was out of work for two weeks and reached $ 4,000 . Police report came to our advantage and said his insurance for 100 % responsibility . I am a computer engineer and I have to be on the computer for 8 hours, which means I have to use my index finger for the same amount of time . Still I have pain when I write . Considering all the above facts , how do you think we should settle for ? Also , do you think it's a good idea to hire a lawyer for this ( heard that lawyers charge a 30 % solution ) ? Thanks in advance .

  • 4How much money can I expect from my settlement in my car accident?

    I was a victim of a head on collison in 05-04 a pick up truck had crossed over the median of a two lane highway coming from the opposite direction I suffered many back injuries including herniated discs, and bulging discs, severe neck pain, a torn ligament in my ankle, and was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder. Perhaps the most major thing was my head went through the windshield causing me to have permanent disfigurement to my forhead... I have a dent in my forhead that will not go away without surgery. With plastic surgery it will only leave me with another scar even worse then the one I have, Its something that will be there for the rest of my life. the driver was 100% at fault. Car was demolished. My lawyer said were asking for 100-150,000 my mother is freaking because she says that, that is not enough, I could have died and truthfully I have all these things i will have to deal with for the rest of my life and im only 24.

  • 6I was recently in a car accident and was wondering about how much money to expect for my settlement?

    In November 2010 , I was in a car accident that left my car. The other driver is at fault and their insurance company ( Allstate ) already paid for a replacement car . I had to go to the hospital because they thought some broken ribs . Turns out it was torn cartilage , nothing was broken . I also had whiplash, low back pain due to disc rotation impact , shoulder pain impact , and now has a beautiful chest scar from burns my seatbelt . Iv been going to a chiropractor and a physical therapist for almost three months and I'm curious what kind of money you would expect of this settlement - I do not work so I will not be compensated for that, but I had to pay someone to come and help me take care of my little boy and I could not even lift the first week after the accident . Also my cell phone and iPod broke from hitting the windshield . Will they be included in the amount ? I hired a lawyer because the insurance company was trying to tell me they were not going to pay my medical bills , but has not really even talked to me a lot since I hired him , so I really do not know what to expect . If you have any experience with this sort of thing or know someone who does , really appreciate any information you might have. thanks
