hi, i got in an car accident in may. got rear-ended. not my fault. the other car's insurance Allstate took the liability and paid for my car damage of 5000 bucks. after getting evaluated by MD, i got the treatment for massage and acupuncutre till 8/30. i feel better. today the insurance adjuster from allstate called me and left me a message saying that "i want to discuss your claim, i owe you medical bills and pain and suffering. today i would like to make an offer for pain and suffering alone for $1500. please get back to me so we can discuss this". why is she making an offer today for pain and suffering alone? what about the medical bills? I'm sure she hasn't received all the bills from my doctors since my last treatment was 3 days ago. do you think $1500 is reasonable? if I settle thepain and suffering now, what is going to happen to the medical bills? is she trying to make me settle for $1500 and sign something so they can back out on the medical claims later? and if I were to hire a lawyer, can I expect to receive more than $1500 ?
