  • 6Auto accident/personal injury settlement?

    Last July, this car reared me. The police came write up a report. That car is at fault. I went to see chiropractor after this car accident and medical bill total $1500. I did negotiate and ask for $1800 plus medical bills. Asking for $1800 is not too much. The insurance original offer is $200 + medical bills $1500. Insurance reply back to me increase to $500 Here is his email to me: I can increase my offer to $2000 total inclusive of your medical bills, but I will be unable to approach your demand of $1800 plus medical expenses. If you are ready to resolve your claim at this point please let me know and I will send a release to your attention. Should i take this offer? His insurance offer to settle $2000 total inclusive of your medical bills. That's only $500 for pain and suffering. This seems low. Is the insurance low balling me? Is this a fair settlement for soft tissue injuries? This is a Third Party Liability claim. Thank you for your advise.

  • 7After an auto accident, do I need a lawyer to get a settlement for bodily injury?

    I was involved in a car accident where the other party was at fault, and the other parts INS CO already admitted guilt . I only had liability (never again) and my totaled car had a value of $ 13,000 . However, the insured was only covered up to $ 10k, shorting me $ 3k . I have scratches and visible scars on his head from the airbag hitting my glasses . I really just want the value of my car, but if I have to go through lawyer to get property and bodily injury claims over $ 25,000 , after attorney's fees , what's left ? I want to agree with the Ins Co directly .

  • 10Personal injury for a auto accident what would be a proper insurance settlement?

    My wife took place off the road by a point ( he was spotted by improper lane change ) no insurance company is going to offer a deal , how much should we be looking for? His vehicle overturned three times (we paid $ 8000 for the KBB value ) your hospital bill was $ 11,000 ( they said they would cover ) which included a visit to the emergency room one night stay . We are fortunate that she has no broken bones or anything physically but had amnesia and a concussion and still has some pain in the neck and was startled when driving especially at night ?
