My daughter and I were in an accident. The right front of the vehicle was damaged. The airbags did not deploy. GM just offered $500.00 each for compensation. Is this a fair amount or do I need to hire an attorney?

Unfortunately, no ethical attorney can answer a question like this. To answer the question of the value of a case takes months of research, understanding the causes and the effects. Most personal injury attorneys do offer free consultations, however, and may be able to give you a better idea of your options after speaking with you and your daughter personally. You may want to speak with an attorney before signing anything to ensure that your rights are protected.
