Re: what to settle for accident claim

I do not know enough facts to fully estimate the value of your case. But, given that the medical damages alone were $900, the initial offer seems way too low for you or your son, let alone both of you.

I suggest you have an attorney examine the facts of this case and give you thorough settlement advice. You should pay for this opinion, if need be. You might even hire the attorney to handle the case for you.

Depending upon his age, it may too soon to settle your son's potential claims. Some injuries do not show up immediately.

Good Luck

Not sure I understand this exactly. Your total medical bills were $1,000? And insurance is offering you $700? My email is [email protected]
