My wife was in an accident 3 months ago, it wasn't her fault and now the person's insurance is trying to settle with us. We are seeking $3500 in damages, doctor bills, time off work for injuries, etc. The want to settle for $2000 which isn't close to what we have paid. They will not budge on this amount. So my question is who do I sue to get my $1500? The person that hit us or the insurance company, since they are the ones controlling the settlement?
thanks in advance.Will small claims allow any pain and suffering? She got whip lash from being rear ended. The $3500 is our out of pocket expenses. Since I am in California and the limit is $5000 for Small Claims, should I just ask for $5000 with $1500 pain and suffering? Thanks again for all the advice!
