  • If I counter an offer of $5,000 with a demand for $8,000, do I risk losing the chance for $5,000? What is worst case scenario?

  • Am I entitled to pain and suffering under my u coverage?

    I was in a hit and run. I have had to open a claim under my u insurance. I also had to use my pip coverage since I have been injured.

    Chong’s Answer

    UM coverage, correct? If so, yes, you are entitled to receive pain and suffering on top of getting your medical bills paid. If you this was your first time involved in an auto accident and injury, you should speak to a personal injury attorney. Most of us will offer free initial consultation. Additionally, if you decided to hire a PI attorney, you will be hiring them on a contingent fee basis. That means, you won't have to pay any attorney fees if you don't recover. Studies have shown that you are likely to get a much better offer from the insurance company if you hire an attorney. Good luck!

    Chong’s Answer

    Of course you can sue, but whether you are able to collect from her is the question. Do you know if the other driver has assets that you can collect? I suggest you find that out before deciding whether to sue or not.

    Chong’s Answer

    I am sorry to hear about your injuries. Unfortunately, it would be impossible to estimate how much your case is worth without reviewing your medical specials. Since you are still treting it wouldn't be prudent to discuss the case worth until the after the completion of your medical treatment. I suggest that you continue with your medical treatment and contact a auto accident and injury lawyer to review your case. Most of us will offer free initial consultation.

    Chong’s Answer

    You do not want to settle your case while treating. You want to wait until you are finished with your treatment to settle. Insurance company wants to settle at the onset to avoid paying more later when the full value of the claim is realized. I would contact one of the auto accident injury attorneys for a free consultation. Never assume that insurance adjusters are friends. They do not have your best interest in mind.
