Easy - Pick up the phone and call your lawyer. No one here knows anything about your case, or even who "they" are.
You should act quickly and speak with a lawyer.
The reason there is a sense of urgency is because personal injury claims have a two year statute of limitations. If you do not file a lawsuit before this date, your claim will be barred.
By calling an attorney you will know the value of your claim and protect your rights. Call us at (404) 577-1505 or anyone on this list if you need help.
It sounds like you made a disasterous choice and decided to be your own lawyer. That is almost guaranteed to keep you from ever getting an adequate settlement.
In about a month, you will actually get ZERO instead of anything, as the statute of limitations will run and permanently bar your claim.
See a lawyer TODAY (not next week or next month) but NOW, to see if the damage you did to your case is correctable. While no one here can guess the value of your claim, most of the time people do far better with lawyers than without them.
At this point, you should immediately contact an attorney to begin handling your claim to receive fair compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering - at no upfront cost to you. You must resolve your claim (or file a lawsuit) before Thursday, May 21st. I will need additional information to fully assess your case. However, do not post the specifics on this public website.

Georgia has a two-year time limit from the date of the injury to file the lawsuit. The at-fault party has to be served within the two years as well, unless it is impossible to serve them in that time frame even with due diligence. You need to act NOW to preserve your claim. Contact a qualified personal injury attorney immediately!
