I was hit by a big rig a couple of years ago had an MRI showing two bulging discs had an emg 10 months later showing nerve damage down to my left leg. The truck driver admitted at the scene he was at fault. Here is where it gets interesting a year later I get hit by another driver who was cited for making an unsafe turn. Both accidents caused by other people who admitted or was cited for causing the accidents which caused the permanent injuries that I have now. I have eyewitness testimony for both accidents in my favor along with both police reports and all my medical records with no other accident besides the two caused by other people and I can't understand why my attorney wants me to settle for a net of 80,000 with no pre-existing injuries and a good work record.Maybe there is something that I don't understand but that seems low but on the other hand I am not a lawyer. The discs have herniated now and I have had a disco-gram and my orthopedic doctor wants to do major back surgery. With so many different medical problems that have been caused by these accidents I would figure permanently injuring somebody would be worth more than 80,000 net but I guess that's the going rate these days for permanently injuring people or is it?
