I'm sorry to read about your injury and the struggles you are facing. Auto product liability cases are very challenging and expensive cases to pursue, but there are a number of good attorneys in Georgia who handle them. It's unclear from your post whether you are still in possession of the vehicle. It will be vital to any attorney to have the vehicle inspected by an expert. There also may be other defects beyond the airbag failure and an attorney can investigate those as well with a qualified expert. Avvo is a good place to start looking for attorneys and Google reviews are also a helpful resource.See question
Someone hit me costing me the life of my unborn child, they offered me 80 thousand dollars. I didn't settle. I think they should start at a million...it's a whole human life with limitless potential!
I''m very sorry to hear of your loss. You are right, there is no amount of money that will make up for what you lost. Your best bet is to consult with an attorney to decide whether the offer is reasonable based on the facts of the case. If you are attempting to negotiate this by yourself, it's almost a certainty that the insurance company's offer is below the actual value of your case.See question

If you were struck by an oncoming car while attempting a left turn, you are likely listed at fault on the police report even if you did not receive a ticket. Be sure to let your insurance company know of the wreck so as to avoid any claim that you did not timely notify them of the incident.See question

Contact an attorney immediately to make sure that they protect your right to bring a claim. It's not unusual for victims of car wrecks to not immediately realize they are injured. The sooner you reach out to someone who specializes in personal injury law, the better.See question

Your experience is pretty common and GEICO will not take your case seriously unless you have an attorney. If you did not do anything wrong, you should not be responsible for even "a few hundred bucks" of medical bill. Most attorneys handling PI cases like yours will work on a contingency fee so you owe nothing up front. Your best bet is to contact and attorney to represent your interests and have no further discussions with GEICO.See question
If I was hit by a driver who wasn't listed on the car insurance. Do I sue the insurance policy holder or the driver?
You are certainly able to sue the at-fault driver who caused the wreck regardless of whether they are listed as an insured or not. They may still be covered depending on the facts of your case even if they were not listed on the actual policy. There is also a possible claim against the owner, but that will depend on the actual facts of your case. These cases are fact specific, and you should consult an attorney to ensure it's done properly.See question

You should seek immediate medical treatment for your injuries. Even if you do not think they are that serious, you should at least get checked out to be sure. Do not speak with the insurance company of the at-fault driver. Instead, contact a lawyer to protect your rights. Most offer a free case evaluation so it won't cost you anything to do so.See question

You should definitely consult an attorney in Georgia before doing anything further on your own. If the hit-and-run driver does not have coverage, your uninsured motorist (UM) carrier should provide coverage. It sounds like you are getting the runaround.See question
My case is settled and my attorney is negotiating my liens,and medical expenses but i still have a potion of m settlement that is for my personal injury.
It depends on the language of the contract that you signed w/ your attorney. Some lawyers include language in the contract allowing them to hold money back to pay the liens. If that is not in your contract, then you can demand the money. Also, keep in mind that your failure to pay off valid liens could result in the insurance company that settled with you seeking indemnification from you should the medical provider seek to enforce its lien/See question
