    You hired your attorney for their advice and experience. If they believe it is the correct value for your case, you should hear their explanation why. If you don't have the experience to know the value of your claim, you should not believe you know that there is more to get. If the explanation is not good enough for you, you may consider another attorney. Also -yes, you only go after the insurance, unless the insurance limit is not enough to fully compensate you.

    You have the absolute right to be happy with your attorney, and their service. If you are not happy, they may not be the attorney for you. I would at least speak to another attorney personally and see if they can offer you service that is acceptable to you. If you find another attorney you are happy with, you can always change attorneys. Don't be stuck with someone who will not communicate with you. It's your claim, not theirs.

    Yeah, they don't get to claim depreciation. They have to fix what they caused, and pay the fair market price. Unfortunately, attorney's are unlikely to become involved for a $1000 controversy, but everyone is correct, you should hold out for the full $5,000, and threaten to take them to court if they don't pay it, tomorrow! Good luck.

    Any attorney that attempts to give you an actual monetary answer for this, you should be concerned about. It sounds to me like there is not a very accurate determination as to the extent of your injuries, nor if you are done with your medical care. If you are not released to Maximum Medical Improvement, or no longer going to see doctors for your injuries, then nobody can accurately calculate how much your pain and suffering can be. The short answer is that your pain and suffering is always...

    very possible. They have to typically offer you market value for a similar vehicle, thus a similar vehicle with restored salvage title. Those are not worth what a vehicle with normal title is worth, and it would be very difficult to compare.

    This will depend entirely on your contract agreement with that attorney. Often when an attorney withdraws they take no fee, but you may need to pay back any costs they incurred. Some may take a percentage of any offer that is on the table currently, and may even file an attorney's lien on the claim. You first need to call the attorney and find out if they are going to take any percentage. Your new attorney will likely need to know that information.

    Yes, this could be a slip and fall case, which is a personal injury claim. These are difficult cases, but attempt to talk to an experienced injury attorney in the city where it occurred.

    Not exactly sure which insurance company you are referring to. That would make a big difference in the answer. But an experienced injury attorney in your area should be able to help you too.

    You are not in a great spot, since you likely signed off on the inspection, and no damage was noted when you picked up the car, but when you dropped it off, there it is. Your own personal car insurance may cover the damage, try calling your agent to see if it will cover the rental car. If not, try negotiating with the guys for the repairs. If that doesn't work, then think about getting an attorney to help you.

    It would appear so. However, you should also check your parents insurance. They may have coverage for you under their policy.
