My girlfriend get in a car accident, the guy hit her front to front; he was under drugs and got criminal charges. Now his insurance wants to settle for 35000$ which after lawyer take his part will barely pay medicals. In addition his insurance stressing out that she didn't report pinched nerve right away, only after a month of accident, and that she was wearing small hills on the deposition. Did they have valid defense is it wise to settle or should we go to court? She was unable to work her full hours for a month, her foot was broken, she got concussion and pinched nerve. Our lawyer just want to settle and finish fast, but it seems to me that he just pursue his own interests. What are average estimates for cases like that? in your opinion should we settle or go to court?Thank you very much for your responces. I have some additional information to share though. My gf had 4 broken bons (fractures) in her foot, neck injury, sholders tendenitis, post concussion and pinched nerve. Residual injuries include: pain in the foot, headaches, pain in the neck and sholders. She cannot walk for a long time anymore, has to stop and rest ect...Defendants policy limit in 100,000$ Does it make sense to go to trial?
