A hummer ran into our bedroom and hit me while my wife and I were in Bed. I thought it was an open an shut case and I was hurt pretty significantly. I was in the hospital for 6 days and was on bed rest for another month and then out of work for 3 months. My total medicals were 61000 my lost pay was 12000. Now the time to settle and my lawyer says there is a 100K liability limit and the insurance is offering that. The guy does not seem to have very many assets so take the settlement. Lawyer was initially at 33% and he says he will offer to take 25% so I can pocket more. I am not able to trust my lawyer because he lectures me like I am trying to fake my injuries. Is there anything I can do? Can any of his other insurance policies or my rental property insurance cover anything?
There are many types of personal injuries for which financial damages can be awarded, including physical, emotional, and psychological injuries.
