I was stopped at a red light on the PCH in LA and rear ended by a speeding motorcyclist. My three month old baby was in the back seat. The motorcyclist was found 100% at fault in the police report.The baby was ok thank God! $3500 worth of damage to my car, I had severe whiplash and a bulging disk in my back. So far my medical bills are around $5000. I haven't been able to take any painkillers because I'm still nursing. Obviously I am in a lot of pain and it has been awful. It hurts to pick up and carry my baby :( I also have a pre-existing back injury from over ten years ago. (Compression fracture.) There isn't much that can be done for my back other then chiro, pilates and pain management. Can I ask for money for my baby in case something comes up later that was undiagnosed?
