It is extremely difficult to tell you the value of your claim without a lot more facts. I encourage you to consult an attorney in Macon. There are a number of good ones. If you are just trying to settle on your own with the insurance company, I doubt if you can get above the $15,000 - $20,000 range even on a good day. They will probably try to hold it to $8500 - $10,000. You should be aware that there is a two year statute of limitation for personal injury in Georgia, so any suit must be filed in court by the second anniversary of the injury.

I fully agree with Mr. Shigley's answer. If you have not already found a lawyer in Macon to help you, please feel free to contact me. I am on Mulberry Street in downtown Macon. My office number is (478) 745-9002.
Best of luck to you.
