I hired attorney right away, but still my case has not settled.
My attorney said that the accident was not my fault, but defendant had state minimum insurance $12,500. My medical fee was almost $8,000, and my health insurance paid the cost except my copay, but I know that I have to pay back the cost to the health insurance after I settled.
I feel like $12.500 is not enough to cover my mental damage, medical fee and attorney fee.
My attorney says that even if I sue the defendant and try to get more money than state minimum, the person usually can not pay it.
I do not understand my attorney said this comment before he investigate the defendant financial status.
What should I do? Should I give it up?
