A few months ago my husband was driving w/ our 4 year old & was rear ended while at a stop sign. The car bumper was smashed in, the trunk bent in mildly, the fuel tanked damaged to the point of leaking. Her truck was completely fine. Both got seen by Dr.s and x-ray. Husband is still occasionally stiff in the neck, baby is now fine, was sore for a week or so. They claimed responsibility and offered to settle at 1500 plus bills & our car fixed. I researched & found the woman has 5 counts of illegal possession of prescription drugs, and driving while on them. Some were dismissed after the 1st charge stuck. She was CLEARLY under the influence of something at the accident, & the police gave her a sobriety test (i don't know if she passed) Is this a fair settlement or do i need a lawyer?
