As a pedestrian, I was hit by a car. The driver was driving his father's car with only $10,000 liability. It appears they have no assets. I do not own a vehicle or have a driver's license. Hospital liens are already in excess of $200,000. The insured company sent a $10,000 check to the hospital, approximately $400 in personal property loss and approximately $400 in lost wages to me. I have been off work two months, have yet to be able to put weight on my foot (that had to be re-attached) and I have no idea when or if I will be back to work or even walk. I have approximately six (1/2 pay) weeks left on short term disability, have lost my apartment and am looking at bankruptcy and ruin. Please tell me if I have any recourse.
