Injured on a ride with 2 witnesses. Made management aware of what happened and I filed an incident report immediately. I was given a copy. I went to the emergency room that next morning in hopes my pain would've subsided, it didn't. I then retained a lawyer at one of the biggest firms in the state. We went thru almost 2 yrs of doctor visits etc. They send out a demand for 90,000+. The insurance company of the property responds with basically a heck no, this never happened. we'll give $5k. This leaves me with nothing. Attorney is not pushing for arbitration but i'm the one still suffering.
You have received what is called a "lowball". Make an appointment to sit down with your attorney to review status and an action plan. Only your own attorney with your complete file knows the actual facts and circumstances. Give your attorney an opportunity to explain the next step. See paragraph 5 in the link below on "lowballs".

You are going to have to file suit if you haven't already. Not the Nevada statute of limitations in these kinds of cases is only 2 years. If your case is worth a high five-figure sum, then your case is exempt from arbitration. Nevada's mandatory arbitration program caps cases at $50,000 and so that is not where you want to be. It sounds like you need to have meeting with your attorney and discuss the value of your case and what your attorney's strategy is.
