In June of 2010 my daughter and I were hit by a drunk driver. It was a head on collision. I went through the windshield and every bone waist down was either broke or dislocated as well as head injuries. Shortly after recieving my settlement I began having seizures and serious knee and ankle complications due to the accident. I was in a wheelchair for 3 months and on crutches an additional 3 months. I only recieved $20,000. The originally settlement was set for $250,000. I was told in order to speed up the process I should agree to the $20,000. I was only 16 years old at the time. I went through and am still going through serious PTSD, pain, and am having seizures caused by my head injury. I feel I was inadequately compensated simply due to the extent of my injuries.
