My wife and I were in a total loss accident two years ago. We did hire an experienced auto accident attorney, we did go to the therapy and the doctors. After my attorney filed a lawsuit of $100,000 for each case, what we could get was just $20,000 for each case.
The problems were that my policy only covers $25,000 for each occurrence and that the other party's policy only covers $20,000 for each occurrence. It turned out that we each receive $20,000 from the other party's insurance, and our attorneys are shooting for $5,000 more for each case. He said that the maximum we can get is just $25,000. "That's the law," he said.
My question is what the law is for the auto accident. I've seen some people who can get $100,000 and $300,000 for their cases. I trust my attorney, but I'm just confused.
