You have a serious injury which is likely to be permanent. You should not attempt to negotiate a settlement with an insurance company yourself, and you should not be discussing your medical condition with them. You are not only entitled to be compensated for your past pain and suffering, but you are also entitled to be compensated for your future pain and suffering, lost wages, unpaid medical expenses and future losses. I would suggest that you immediately consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can evaluate you injuries and either negotiate an appropriate settlement or represent you in a lawsuit to protect your rights. I would be pleased to discuss this matter with you.Ask a similar question
I would suggest that you contact a local area personal injury attorney. Most personal injury attorneys offer a free initial consultation. Talk to a few and then choose one you feel comfortable with and who is very experienced. You have been injured and may have unknown issues at this time. You should be treating and getting yourself well. Continue doing that and retain a good attorney to help you with the insurance process. Believe me, he/she will know when to ask for a settlement. Sorry you were injured and I hope you get better soon. Best of luck.

Do not attempt to settle until your doctor indicates that you are at MMI (maximum medical improvement) which given that kind of injury will take a while. The very next thing you should do is go see a personal injury attorney. Your case has significant value, and you will not get full value on your own.

Stop talking to the at fault driver's insurance company. You think you know what you are doing but you are inevitably damaging your case. An experienced PI attorney is critical in a case like yours. Call and order my book "the Pa Accident Book" at 215-576-5150 and ask that it be overnight delivered. A good lawyer will always do better for you than you could possibly do for yourself! Good luck!

You have a serious injury. Don't be foolish, consult a local personal injury attorney. Even attorneys generally do not represent themselves when injured in an auto accident. You are at a very distinct disadvantage in dealing with trained insurance adjusters - I know since I used to train claims adjusters. I do not have a dog in this fight since I do not practice law in PA - I am just trying to give you some good advice.
