She was a passenger in both accidents. 1st accident they were rearended, had chest contusion from airbag and neck sprain. 2 days later she was riding with another friend and her friend driving slammed into the back of a truck. Front of car smashed, windshield shattered and airbags deployed. My daughter was burned on her leg from the air bag and had upper back sprain, neck sprain and shoulder sprain, taken by ambulance to the hospital. Follow up visit to doctor ordered physical therapy 3 x a week for 3 weeks, plus muscle relaxers and inflammotories daily. She has now been released, the burn is still not healed and doctor states it could take 1-2 yrs for coloring to come back but shouldn't have major scarring. She is 16 yrs old, missed 15 cheer practices, 3 football games, pep ralliesalso, the girl driving the 2nd car, who was 100% at fault, was friends with my daughter and since the accident hasn't spoke to her. My daughter has lost a friend, she is experiencing issues with her cheer team due to the amount of practices and games that have been missed. 1st wreck medical $2000 and 2nd wreck medicals $7400. I also sent them a daily journal keeping details of pain, everything she missed out on, physical therapy etc so they could see the extent of pain she went through. The 2nd car insurance offered medical of $7400 and pain and suffering $3000...I feel like they are low balling my daughter??
