My friend and I were in a car accident in early Jan 09. The other driver was at fault for merging into my lane but was in a lane for going left only. He hit the left rear side of the passenger door. My car has been repaired ($2500) and my friend and I have completed seeing the chiropractor. My medical bill come out to around $2500 and my friend was around $2000. My insurance covered most of the medical bills for both of us and the repairs to the car. I am now ready to settle but am not sure how to go about it. Do I wait for the other insurance to contact me or do I let them know I am ready to settle? I haven't gone to any lawyers at this point. Should I hire an attorney? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
