    It is really difficult to give an answer without knowing specifics of injury, possible wage loss, medical bills etc. Also, until done treating or reaching maximum medical improvement you really should not settle. But call a personal injury trucking lawyer ASAP. Scooper@schmidtkramer.com 1-800-232-6301

    You are not required to accept the settlement. Also, you may have a claim for your personal injuries. You should contact a personal injury attorney and discuss all of your rights and options and do not sign anything until you do so. Scott Cooper 717-888-8888 scooper@schmidtkramer.com

    The problem may be that the other driver only has a limited insurance policy and any possible underinsured motorist coverage is also limited. You probably want to start by asking your attorney just to let you know what the limits are on the various coverages.

    First you should contact your own insurance company to look into a claim. If covered for the loss, your company will pay you the cost to repair the vehicle and if it is totalled then it will pay you the fair market value. This is after your deductbile. Then your company will do what is called subrogate against the other drivers insurance company and obtain your deductble and their money back. Scott Cooper 717-888-8888 scooper@schmidtkramer.com

    You should contact a lawyer. In Pa. you generally have two years to file a suit but if you did not get the ID of the car then there are a whole host of other issues to explore.

    You should probably call an auto accident injury lawyer. However, under any circumstance it it usually best to wait until you have recovered or reached maximum medical improvement. Also, if you have limited tort or full tort is extremely important.

    This is really a question that only a Pennsylvania injury lawyer who specializes in these types of car accident cases can help answer AFTER speaking to the person injured and finding out information about the accident, treatment, and especially the scarring and looking at photos. You should retain an attorney who can look into thr matter and give you an informed opinion about the settlement suggesitons and also look into other areas of recovery such as restitution and underinsured (UIM)...

    In general, I think if you tell them you should receive $30 a day they will accomodate you. Also, if you had rental coverage on your own insurance policy then you can make a claim on your own poilicy and generally that will pay $25-$30 a day. Scott Cooper scooper@schmidtkramer.com 717-888-8888

    you should consult with an attorney and see if they can look into the case for you. In some cases the second surgery may just be a normal risk and complicaiton fo the surgery. Also, the second sugery beign needed may have been the result of what you are concerned about. But an attorney who specializes in medical malpractice can review the entire claim.
