I was a passenger in an accident. I was taken to the hospital by ems and seen for contusions on chest my chest, left knee, right wrist, thoracic sprain, and whiplash. I followed up with a physician for back pain, left knee, and right wrist and all he did was x-ray my wrist again and give me a standard wrist brace. I then went to a chiropractor and have seen him twice for my neck and back pain. I then went to another physician for my wrist b/c it feels like something is ripping in my wrist and it is difficult to care for my child and is difficult to do daily activities, like shower and dress myself. The physician provided me with another wrist brace with a thumb stabilizer and wrote me a prescription for physical therapy. I also lost my job b/c I couldn't pick up computers, b/c I was working as a PC tech due to back pain and the excruciation pain in my wrist. Therefore I lost my home and am in serious financial trouble and has caused me extremely emotional distress b/c this not only effected me, but also my daughter. Next week the insurance company should be ready to make me an offer to settle for "pain and suffering". In your opinion, what's the least amount that I should settle for?
