I was in a car accident 4 months ago. I was stopped on the fwy and this girl rear ended us at approx 25-30 mph. I went to the ER and was diagnosed with acute back strain. I was prescribed medication and was advised to seek chiropractic treatment if pain persisted, which it did and got worse. My bills came out to 2600$. The damage to the car was 1200$. I tried to settle with the insurance company and they only offered 1700 which doesn't even cover the medical. The reason being that I could not possibly have been hurt with such little damage. I filed for small claims court against the other driver. Now what? Will they settle before court? What should I expect to happen next? Please helpSince I refusethe offer of 1700, they have now sent me a letter saying that there is no offer and I could not be hurt. If the judge decides in my favor, will they be required to pay? I go to court in 3 weeks or so.Also I was told the insured is trying to file a continuance because she has a family vacation which in California is not a valid reason to postpone a court date. Why is the insurance company stalling? I just want this to be settled already. I see why people hire lawyers. This has been stressful to say the least.
