I stay in Georgia and a person who was drunk and high on drugs crashed into my house. I was struck by his vehicle(nissan titan)

I sustained back, legs, arms,head injuries, etc. I been going to a chiropracter over a year and the insurance company is only offering me a very small amout to settle this case(7900) My house has been destroyed and I was homeless for over 7 months. What would be a reasonable amount for me to ask for in a settlement or should I go to court to let them decide? I have already hired a lawyer last year, but no results yet.

Your lawyer is the first person to ask, but if you'd like to discuss it, my partner and I worked for insurance companies a combined 29 years before switching sides. I believe you have a case worth a substantial amount. Whatever you do I wish you the best of luck.

You have an attorney who has seen your medical evidence and knows the facts of the case, the available coverage, etc. Asking someone here to take a wild guess with none of that information is not only asking the impossible, but it will, if anyone guesses, get you answers that are likely to be wrong.

What would the the reasonable thing to do is to retain an attorney. Most of the time when an attorney is not involved in these type of matters, the insurance company does not treat you fairly. Please feel free to give our office a call if you would like to discuss this matter further.

If you haven't already, I strongly advise you to call your attorney and find out what in the hell is going on. They should be in a better position than any of us on here to answer your questions. If for some reason they are not, I am sure there are plenty of other attorneys who would be more than happy to handle your case.
