    Answered . It is difficult to know the value of the case without more information. If there is $50,000 in available insurance it would seem reasonable that your claim is worth in excess of that amount. There may be other insurance, your underinsured specifically, or their uninsured coverage. You should consult with a local attorney that you feel comfortable with and try to get the case settled, or if necessary take the case through the litigation process to trial.

The carrier knows you can't litigate. Mechanic repairs your car, doctor cares for your injury, contractor builds an addition; point made? Good luck.
