i was in an accident not too long ago but the accident was caused by the other driver, which was recognized by the insurance company & the police. the car was in my parents name & they handled the settlement for the vehicle. after the accident i was transported by ambulance to the hospital but was deemed stable & released approximately an hour later. now its been a few weeks since the car was settled & about 2 weeks after the medical bills were handled but i have not heard back from the insurance companies. i was only sore from the accident with minor cuts, but i was still told that i am entitled to a settlement for pain & suffering. is this true & what should i do to claim this if it is? i really would appreciate any extra money for college after the inconvienence.
