You should have retained experienced counsel already. The average lay person has no comprehension of how adversarial these cases are. The insurance company will be happy to sit back and let you do irrevocalbel harm to your case. You may have already done so. Be smart; get a lawyer. Good luck.

There are several variables regarding settlement value of a case. Some of these are; the amount of medical bills, lost wages, venue (case would be brought in county where the at-fault party lives), amount of insurance coverage, etc. You also need to watch out for possible liens where you may have to reimburse your health insurance carrier for your medical bills under Federal law. I would be more than happy to discuss this case with you. I can be reached at 770-973-2599, ext. 203.

Please be aware that the average lay person is at a serious disadvantage. The insurance company wants to settle your case for as little as possible. You may not understand how much your case is worth, and an experienced insurance adjuster will take advantage of your uncertainty.
A qualified personal injury lawyer with experience in cases similar to yours can review your medical records, talk to your doctors, and give educated advise about your case's value. Brain injuries often have lasting effects, and you indicate that you are in fact experiencing such effects.
If you do decide to pursue representation, I suggest you interview several attorneys and select whoever you feel is the best fit for you. Good Luck.
